Ali Peacha, High Five

Welcome to High Five! I am so happy you decided to start your school career here at Bancroft IB School. You are going to LOVE it here. I DO!

I have been working for Minneapolis Schools for over 20 years in the early childhood department. For the past 10 years I have been at Bancroft teaching High Five and never want to leave! I LOVE working with the youngest students in the school. Early Childhood is a magical time- where they learn, grow and become so independent. Bancroft IB School is a very caring place full of loving staff and a very diverse community. We strive to all work together for what is best for each child. In High Five we learn through play and exploration.

When away from Bancroft, I am a mom to 3 children: Cora (16), Stefan (14), and Renee (11). I also live with my husband, Dan, who is a local musician and guitar teacher. Our lives are busy with kid activities and family and friends. 

I am very lucky to be working with Ms. Sue our AE, who works daily in our classroom. Sue has been with Minneapolis for over 20 years. She is a very knowledgeable, caring and fun adult. 

Please always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with all of you this school year. 


Ms. Ali
