At Arapahoe this year, we have a multitude of new staff. From English to Science, there are almost too many new staff members to count. I had the chance to sit down with one new staff member, Social Studies teacher Peter Weyhrich, and chat about his teaching career before Arapahoe, and a couple other details about him.
Q: Have you taught before? If so, where and for how long?
A: I taught the last nine years at Chaparral High School.
Q: Which classes do you teach?
A: US History and Western Civilizations.
Q: Where did you grow up and go to college?
A: I was born in Columbus, Ohio and moved around the midwest quite a bit when I was a kid. I moved to Colorado when I was in middle school. I attended the University of Northern Colorado.
Q: What is your ideal day?
A: I love spending the day with my two kids and being outdoors. So I would say a combination of the two would be my ideal day!
Q: What country would you most like to travel to and why?
A: Argentina. I have always wanted to visit Buenos Aires and spend some time in Patagonia.
Q: What’s something unique about you?
A: I am related to the world’s oldest conjoined twins.
