Mrs. Corrie McCloy Peters
Instructor of Language Arts and Humanities
Corrie is passionate about the connections between big ideas and everyday life. She believes that the best literature and art belongs in the hands of every child and that every child has the capacity to understand, appreciate, and even love it. She is excited to join the Bluebonnet Scholars team and to share with students how stories shape our way of being in the world.
Corrie graduated from Houston Baptist University with degrees in writing and English. She coordinated writing tutoring in the university academic success center and edited Writ in Water, an undergraduate literary journal, and co-edited Satellite, a nonfiction online journal. Her involvement in both academic and student leadership communities earned her the Outstanding Student in English Award, the Peer Mentor of the Year Award, and the President’s Award.
In 2018, Corrie joined the teaching team at The Field School, a classical, Christ-centered school serving families in West Chicago and Oak Park, IL. She served as an instructional aid, as well as teaching 4-5th grade math and 4-6th writing, composer study, and poetry study. She loves to see children freely engage with the world of ideas through art and literature, and she seeks to come alongside students as they practice habits leading to discovery.
Outside of school, Corrie enjoys hiking, exploring new cities, cooking for family and friends, raising kittens and house plants, and reading (also re-reading!) great books.
