Jean Perry

Third Grade Teacher

The St. George community offers the educational foundation which fulfills my passion for faith based learning. My desire to return to the classroom to work with children on a daily basis is paramount. Thirty years of experience in varying roles in public education has led me back to that which I feel is my greatest gift:  working with children. My husband, Daniel, and I have been married for 30 years. I have two daughters; Jillian Higgins and Erin Perry. Jillian teaches high school history and Erin teaches seventh grade English. Needless to say I have great resources just a phone call away. The newest addition to my family is my first grandchild, Elizabeth Ellen Higgins. Entertaining Ms. Ellie consumes most of my free time.

I believe educating the whole child truly builds future leaders of tomorrow. As educators, we must challenge our students with real world experiences building problem solving skills for a global society.
