About Mrs. Perez...
Phone: (480) 424-8543
Welcome to 6th grade! I am so excited to be part of this wonderful school community and to be your child's teacher this year. I have worked various roles in the Chandler Unified School District for the past 5 years, and this will be my first year teaching 6th grade. I am a proud mother of 4 CUSD students, one of which attends Rice Elementary.
My Education and Professional Background
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Arizona State University in 2006. I also earned my Master of Education in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University in 2022. I am a life-long learner who is dedicated to education.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe in creating a safe, welcoming, and positive environment where students are able to learn from one another and share their ideas. I encourage my students to give their best efforts, take risks, and celebrate the outcomes. It is important for my students to know that mistakes are okay. Embracing mistakes encourages a learning environment that allows students to feel comfortable enough to try new things.
I strive to ensure your child will love learning as much as I love teaching. It is important to me that all my students feel accepted and loved. Every child is unique and has their own strengths. I build on these strengths to make each child successful. Involving parents in all aspects of learning is crucial. By working as a team with each family, we can make every student reach their highest potential.
