Peterson is pleased to offer the benefit of more than 30 years
of experience and research into Southeastern Pennsylvania's English
colonial domestic history. Using primary sources to document her
research, she brings her years of real life experience and intense
personal research into your classroom to give life to our foremothers
and to dispel the popular myths that have become so firmly embedded
in our interpretation of American colonial history. Programs are
available to private and public schools, organizations, groups,
individuals and historic sites in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and
Delaware, though not limited to those areas.
Deborah is an animated, intelligent speaker who loves to share
her expertise and experiences with interested parties. She comes
to your site with many authentically reproduced items, dressed
in carefully researched colonial clothing made by her own hand.
You will see, recreated as closely as possible, what a woman of
the lower or middling sort would have looked like in Southeastern
Pennsylvania circa 1760-1770.
and hands-on experiences have been popular teaching events for
students of all ages. Parents who have noted the success of these
classes have requested that Deborah create a series of more detailed
and sophisticated presentation for adults, and she has been more
than pleased to answer that request. Browse her offerings by general
age group, or by specific subject matter.
