Mrs. Sara Peshoff
Hi, I'm Sara Peshoff. I was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana and grew up in Moss Bluff. Ever since I was a young girl, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. To achieve this goal I graduated from McNeese State University with a certification in Early Childhood and Elementary education. I also have a bachelors degree in General Studies and an associates degree in Sociology. I started my teaching career at Brentwood Elementary as a 5th grade teacher. I then moved on to teaching younger children. I taught Head Start/Pre-K for 5 years. I have now been a part of Gillis for 6 years teaching 1st grade.
I was married in 2005, and my husband Ricky and I have three children. My family attends church at St. Theodore’s Catholic church which I have been a member of since I was born. For fun, I love to read, go swimming, and BBQ with my family any chance I can.
Over the years I have had the wonderful opportunity of teaching many children. I am passionate about creating a safe and nurturing environment where all children feel respected, cared for, loved, and eager to learn. A positive self-esteem is what I want my students to walk out of my classroom with.
