Welcome to third grade! My name is Larry Perdue and I am so excited to be here at CTA Goodman and teaching your third graders. I began my teaching career in 2000 and have taught second, third, fourth, and sixth grades. I am married and have 3 grown children. In my spare time I enjoy surfing, reading, camping, traveling, and spending time with my family. I'm thrilled about being a 'Gator' and teaching alongside of some of the best teacher in the Chandler Unified School District.
My Education and Professional Background
I was born and raised in San Diego, CA. I have an undergraduate degree in Business Administration (Marketing) and a Master's Degree in Management. After spending nine years in the Navy we moved from Florida to Arizona. I attended the University of Phoenix and received my teaching certificate in 2000 and my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2001.
My Educational Philosophy
As a teacher, I know that I have a significant influence on the children that I teach. This is an enormous responsibility I take very seriously. I will set high expectations for each student, expect them to attain them, while at the same time, ensure that they know that I am here to help them to succeed. I want to be a role model and leader in their journey toward gaining the knowledge and life skills they will need to become good citizens and productive members of society.
