Polly Peterson started out with aspirations to teach. Many of her relatives are teachers and principals, and although she has taught communication courses at her local community college, her radio career and voice over work takes center stage and has for the past 30 years.
When StarrMatica began looking for the voice of our K-2nd grade content, our recording specialist at Attica Recording Studios suggested we have Polly do a test recording of some of our content. Once we heard her read the line from our cause and effect lesson, “The dominoes falling caused the spider to be squished.” we were hooked. We couldn’t believe she could make a spider being squished sound so cute.
Polly’s favorite part of recording for StarrMatica is being able to help kids! With her teaching background, she really appreciates the writing of the lessons. “The online teaching technique provides a relaxed and fun playground for kids to soak up valuable learning lessons,” Polly shares.
And although Polly looks forward to every recording session, she quips that singing a modified version of BINGO in the Numerals lesson was quite a challenge. “All kidding aside,” Polly shares, “I feel honored to be a part of this.”
Polly’s work outside of StarrMatica includes radio, tv, online, and training projects for major corporations. But, Polly likes to stay busy with voice projects because she believes, “If you love what you do then it’s not work!” And you can hear that enthusiasm in her work with StarrMatica.
