Ali Peacha, High Five

My name is Ali Peacha. For the past 4 years I have been the High Five Teacher at Bancroft School. Prior to comming to Bancroft I was a High Five Inclustion Teacher, Birth- Three Early Childhood Special Education and Center Based Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. I have been with Minneapolis Public Schools on and off for over 16 years (with a few years off to travel and have children). 

I recieved my Early Childhood Special Education and Early Education degree from St. Catherine's in St. Paul and completed my Masters in Teaching degree in 2001 from St. Mary's.  

In addition to teaching I am a mother of 3 children. Cora (age 10), Stefan (age 8) and Renee (age 5). We live in Bloomington with my husband, Dan and our dog, Bela. We are an active family that loves camping, running, biking or doing anything outside. My husband is a musician and is home to help the kids get off to school- which is an awesome help! That makes it easier for me to be on time to work! 

I am really excited to be teaching High Five. I love watching the growth of the students and how excited they are to learn. I look foward to working with new families and students. Please always feel free to stop by and say hi and see what we are doing! 

I can be reached at school 668-3550 or through email at
