Jessica Peters

Hello! My name is Jessica Peters and I am the Principal of Carrie Gosch Early Learning Center. I have had the privilege of working in the School City of East Chicago since 2003. I’m extremely blessed to be a part of a school corporation that has a dedicated and compassionate staff, caring parents and community members and above all, marvelous students who strive to be their best each and every day. Before becoming Principal of Carrie Gosch, I was Principal at Harrison Elementary, Assistant Principal at Lincoln Elementary, and I was a teacher for my first eight years in this school district. Purdue University is my alma mater where I received a Master’s in Administration and a Bachelor of Arts in Education. My ongoing efforts are always focused on the health and safety needs of our students and supporting their learning environment. The best part of my job is seeing our students learn new concepts and grow each day. My family lives in Valparaiso. My husband Joe and I enjoy traveling with our daughter Arden to enjoy new experiences. I am very proud to be a Cardinal!
