I am Petra Mehen - your Freshman or Junior Theology teacher. This is my 14th year at BL: I was here for 7 years; then I left for 5 years to be home with my daughter Elanor, who was born in China; then I returned to BL, and am in my 7th year back. While I was away, I taught at the University of Dallas as an adjuct instructor of Understanding the Bible, a freshman core class.
My husband Patrick is also a teacher, at Cistercian Prep in Irving. My daughter is now in sixth grade.
I studied for my B.A. in Philosophy (with a minor in History) at the University of Oklahoma, and I have two M.A. degrees: Liberal Arts, from St. John's College in Santa Fe, and Theology, from the University of Dallas.
In my free time I like to play piano, ride my bike, read suspense novels in German, work on my Spanish, and embroider items for friends and family.
