Teacher Feature: Mrs. Sylvie Peev

Mrs. Sylvie Peev has joined the FCS faculty this year. Previously Mrs. Peev taught French classes 

at Virginia Academy. She now teaches Lower School French, Third & Fourth Grade Art, and Middle/High School French 1.

For Lower School students, Mrs. Peev plans very “hands-on” lessons, with interactive activities and participation. Her goal in teaching French is to give students the “full package”: reading, writing, speaking and understanding.

What attracted Mrs. Peev to FCS was the school’s impressive level of academics. She also appreciates the small class size.

Mrs. Peev’s favorite aspect of teaching is interacting with our wonderful students. She enjoys contributing to their learning and development with warmth and authority. “I am very happy to teach French,” she says. “It is my calling. To see the joy in their eyes when they accomplish their goals or understand a new concept is very rewarding.”
