My name is Erin Perkinson and I am one of the Learning Lab teachers. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. I earned my Bachelor of Arts at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Elementary Education. I also have a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from West Virginia University with a school counseling specialization. In addition to my two degrees, I have a School Counselor endorsement, Learning Behavior Specialist 1 endorsement and my English as a Second Language endorsement. I have taken the Illinois State Board of Education Gifted Education Seminar and am currently taking the course work necessary to become a Reading Specialist. As you can see I am a lifelong learner and look forward to nurturing that same passion for learning in your student! My goal is to help each student grow academically, socially and emotionally.
I believe that open communication with parents is a key component to a student’s success. The best way to contact me throughout the school day is via email. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
