About Mrs. Perham...
Position: 3rd Grade
My name is Mrs. Perham and I am excited to be part of the Jacobson Jet's community. Teaching children is my second career and my passion. A little bit about me: I am a native Arizonian. My husband and I have been married since 1993 and we have a grown son in the Air Force. In my spare time I read, watch movies, travel, kayak, and spend time with my dogs, family, and friends.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Ottawa University with a Bachelor's Degree in Business and then worked in the field of Human Resources. In 2001, I decided to go back to school and make a career change. In 2003, I graduated from The University of Phoenix with a Master's of Arts in Elementary Education. Since August 2003, I have taught grades 1st through 3rd.
My Educational Philosophy
It is my goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment where a child's uniqueness is valued and respected. I strive to empower students to become positive, independent, lifelong learners, and critical thinkers by providing them with real world and interesting opportunities to learn.
