Mr. Devin Peterhans

Hello students and families, 

I am starting my first year at Farnsworth. I am excited to be a part of this school and community. I work with kindergarten, Ms. Tayson’s, and Ms. Vang’s 1st-grade classes as well as 3rd and 4th grade. 

I grew up in Seattle, WA, and moved to Minnesota in 2018. I graduated from Evergreen State College with my bachelor’s degree in biology. I received my master’s degree in counseling from Adler Graduate School. I highly value supporting students with mental health, building resilience, social-emotional and academic skills. As a school counselor, I use a strengths-based approach when working with students and aspire to work with them from a holistic lens where I can meet them where they are. Outside of school I love spending time with family and friends, hiking in nature, and playing sports, especially soccer. 

I look forward to this school year and getting to know you! Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.


Mission & Vision

Vision: As Farnsworth Aerospace PreK-4 students graduate from high school, they will feel valued, respected, and celebrated for the diversity of talents, gifts, backgrounds, and cultures they bring to the community; will be collaborative and curious critical thinkers in literacy and STEAM; and will have the skills they need to thrive in the 21st century and a plan for their future postsecondary and career paths.

Mission: The Farnsworth Aerospace PreK-4 School Counseling Program will support the academic, social/emotional, and college/career development of students through comprehensive, data-driven, and culturally relevant services that promote equity, access, and success for all students, in order that they will grow to be lifelong learners and productive citizens that pursue their dreams and change the world.
