Mrs. Pedersen holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education. She taught elementary school for 16 years before starting Legacy School in 2008 with co-owner Buffy Baca.

We started Legacy School to ensure parents in the Omaha area that they have a choice in their child’s education. We provide small class sizes, differentiated instruction and 11 acres of land for the students to receive hands-on learning.

What is your education background?

  • Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education (UNO)
  • Bachelors Degree in Special Education (UNO)
  • Endorsement in English as a second language (UNO)

What is your work experience that relates to children?

I have been an educator for the past 28 years.

What are your interests and hobbies?

I enjoy spending time with my family at our cabin: swimming, floating, boating, fishing and reading.

“All of our teachers at Legacy School hold Bachelor or Master Degrees in Education,” said Mrs. Pedersen. “Legacy School maintains low student-teacher ratios and places teacher assistants in every classroom to ensure students receive the individual attention they deserve.”


We provide the perfect education for your child every day
