Ms. Rachel Perez, Fourth Grade
College(s): University of Texas @ Austin
Teaching History: After graduating college, I knew I wanted to be part of PISD. I spent 5 years at Skaggs Elementary teaching 2nd grade and Kindergarten. In 2013 I moved to Brooklyn, NY and spent six years teaching 2nd and 4th grades. This will be my 5th year teaching 4th grade and my second year at the IB World School @ Huffman Elementary!
Family: My 14 year old mini-dachshund Heidi
Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: I practice yoga everyday. I enjoy going to the driving range and riding my bike. I miss traveling, so I have been reading a lot more and have been learning to play the piano.
Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I am passionate about the learner profile traits contributing to the education of the whole child. When we internalize these traits, we will accomplish great things in the classroom and beyond!
