Hello! My name is Miss Perkes. I am very excited to be a part of the Rice family. I grew up in Payson, a small town in northern Arizona. I moved to Phoenix to pursue my teaching dream at Arizona State University. I fell in love with American Sign Language and have worked to teach myself the language. I love doing art projects and hanging out with my French bulldog, Houston!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education in May 2019. I am very excited to continue my teaching career at Rice Elementary School!

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that learning should be fun and exciting. I have always loved to learn and it is my goal to encourage my students to not only enjoy learning but to seek out different opportunities to grow. Every individual has their own style and the uniqueness of each student should be incorporated into their learning. It is my hope that my students will learn as much from me as I learn from them.
