  • Welcome to Mrs. Perry's webpage.  I'm looking forward to an exciting, productive year working with you and your child.  Throughout my experience with teaching, I have become committed to the importance of parent involvement in a student's education.  I firmly believe that your child receives the best education possible when you and I work as a team. 

    I grew up in Chalmette, Louisiana where I began my teaching career.  I have a BA in Elementary Education from the University of New Orleans and graduated in 2012 with my Masters in Educational Leadership from Southeastern Louisiana University.  I taught 2nd and 3rd grades for four years in St. Bernard Parish.  This year begins my thirteenth year in St. Tammany Parish with this being my second year at Riverside Elementary.  I've taught 5th grade, 6th grade,  and 3rd grade in St. Tammany.  I'm excited to continue my journey at Riverside Elementary in 5th grade.  

    My mission for my classroom is to create a learning environment in which each student will succeed.  I believe in meeting the needs of all students by individualized instruction.  I plan to provide instruction to foster independence of students in skills and behavior.

    My expectations for the students are high but achievable.  I want to create responsible, life-long learners that will excel in a positive, cooperative, caring learning environment.  We will work as a TEAM.  Together Everyone Achieves More. 

    Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.  I welcome your calls and messages.
