About Mrs. Perka

This will be my sixth year here in Loudoun County and at Horizon. I have also previously taught first and third grade in Prince William County.

I was born and raised in Loudoun County, Virginia, and I am thrilled to be teaching in the same Public School System that I had such a wonderful and fulfilling experience in as a student. I attended Seneca Ridge MS and graduated from Dominion High School. In December 2016, I graduated from Radford University and then quickly started my first position as a first grade teacher in January 2017.

When I am not at school I love to go to sports games (GO CAPS!), spend time with my family, friends and my furbaby Buoy, go to the gym, and travel to new places. I am also expecting my first little one in late October!

I enjoy working on Sudoku puzzles and reading in my free time. Amazon, Teacher Pay Teachers, and Target are my favorite online stores and I am addicted to Starbucks, Taco Bell, and Sour Patch Kids (:
