Leif Peterson

Teacher Profile

Hello Bobcat Nation! Welcome to my School Loop website for AP U.S. History (APUSH) and CP US History. My name is Mr. Leif Peterson and I am looking forward to another exciting year here at Sage Creek. I first came to SCHS in 2016 and I still feel incredibly fortunate to be a member of this amazing educational learning community and am very excited to call myself a Bobcat!


My wife Laura, and I, are both proud to now call North County San Diego our home. We stay incredibly active and busy at home with our two sons Lincoln and Bradley (2 years old). Outside of the classroom and away from home, we all enjoy checking out the numerous beaches the coast has to offer, going to the Safari Park and San Diego Zoo, swinging by Legoland, or finding a new exciting activity to do.


Below you will find some information about my education and relevant teaching experiences. Feel free to send me an email ( or stop by my room (#2202) anytime. Remember to always be YOU and be your BEST!
