Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Ed Perry
I am excited to have your child as a student. I have been teaching at Homestead Elementary for several years. I started teaching third grade, moved to fourth, and now teach fifth. I studied at Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, to obtain my bachelor’s degree in theater with a minor in psychology and communications. I then spent two years as a sales associate for a graphic design and print company.
I have worked hard to complete my training as a teacher by receiving my master’s degree in teaching and certification from Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill. While working on my master’s, I worked at Fry Elementary as a teacher’s aide in the independent learning center program. Recently, I also finished my second master’s in school improvement leadership, and I am certified as an administrator.
I have always found teaching an art form, and something that I knew I would do. I hope to show enthusiasm and compassion for your child’s learning. I promise to keep lines of communication open not only to your child but to you as well.
