Meet Ms. Perry

This is my 5th year teaching at Walt Disney Magnet School, but I have been working with kids like you for a LONG time.  I began my career with children by running camps and workshops while I was a student, myself, at Rossford High School in Rossford, Ohio.  After graduating I attended Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.  During my studies at O.U. I majored in English and minored in Geography.  Upon graduation I moved all the way to Chicago!  Eager to experience everything the “Big City” had to offer, I joined Americorps.  In Americorps I volunteered in neighborhood elementary schools in West Town, Chicago, providing curricular and extracurricular programs that would have otherwise been cut.  After my year of service I began my career running SCORE! Educational Center, in Lincoln Park where I worked for 6 years; tutoring students and working with their schools.  I then decided that it was time for me to fulfill my dream of having my own classroom and teaching in Chicago Public Schools.  I completed my Masters of Education degree at DePaul University and shortly thereafter I came to teacher at Walt Disney Magnet School and I couldn’t be happier!
