Ms. Jen Perkins
Welcome to Second Grade! I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year! My name is Jen Perkins and this will be my 19th year teaching in the classroom. I taught 2nd grade for 3 years, kindergarten for 15 years, and now I am looking forward to being back in 2nd again! I received my Master’s Degree from George Mason University and my Bachelor’s Degree from Indiana University Of PA.
I have two children in college and a large furry child named Chloe. My daughter is a freshman at the University of South Carolina and my son will be a junior at VCU. I love spending time with my family and friends, as well as paddleboarding, hiking, traveling, reading, photography and basically anything outside. I jump at any chance to get to the beach!
Second grade is such a fun year where the students explore their independence and begin to take a more active role in their education. It is my goal to make each child feel special and to highlight each child’s unique strengths. I meet each child where he/she is and help them grow. I am really looking forward to getting to know each and every student and helping them reach their fullest potential. I sincerely look forward to working together as a team to make this a fun-filled year of learning!
