Mrs. Suzanne Perkins
My name is Suzanne Perkins. I am originally from San Antonio, Texas. I graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word in 1997. I taught second grade at Pecan Valley in the East Central School District for three years before moving to Muscle Shoals, Alabama. I received my Masters in Education in 2004 from the University of North Alabama in In Alabama, I taught third grad for 11 years, and was an instructional coach for three years. My family and I moved back to Texas in the summer of 2016. We currently live in New Braunfels, Texas. I have a son, Mateus, who is a 8th grader at Miller Middle School. My daughter, Melayna, is in fifth grade at Hernandez Elementary.
Teaching is a passion I have had since my early childhood. My mom was paraprofessional for over thirty years. I had wonderful teachers and coaches throughout my school years that inspired me to become an educator. They found a way to make learning meaningful and fun, while setting high expectations. I try to do the same for my students.
"Tell me and I'll forget.Show me and I may remember.Involve me and I learn." -Benjamin Franklin
