Mrs. Heather Peters

My name is Heather Peters, and I am honored to be the principal of Douglas L. Jamerson, Jr. Elementary, the home of the Trailblazers.  I was born and raised in South Dakota where I graduated from Mount Marty College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education.  I continued my education at the University of Sioux Falls and received first a Master of Education degree in K-12 Reading followed by a Master of Education degree in K – 12 Educational Leadership.  I was an educator in South Dakota for over 19 years.  My last three years there I served as a principal. After moving to Pinellas County in July of 2016, I spent two years as the assistant principal of Jamerson Elementary.  In July of 2018, I became the principal at Frontier Elementary.  I was thrilled to come back to Jamerson a few years ago and love the work that we are doing at our school.

My goal as the principal at Jamerson is to develop students into thinkers and problem solvers who are ready to be contributing members of a diverse society. Throughout my career, I have discovered that each child is a unique individual that is able to thrive in a warm, caring and engaging school.  As a school leader, I am committed to contributing to that environment by encouraging lifelong learning, strong parent/school relationships, academic excellence, respectful collaboration and open communication.

Jamerson has a talented instructional team and support staff who meet the needs of our students every day through excellence in teaching and learning.  We encourage students to explore, inquire, and discover solutions for themselves as they become equipped problem solvers.

As principal, I operate with an open-door policy, and I welcome your input.  Feel free to call or stop in and make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make every year the best school year yet!
