Ms. Katherine Perry
I am the ELAR Instructional Coach, and I will be supporting teachers full time this year. This will be my ninth year in education, and my sixth at Jackson. San Antonio is my hometown, born and raised. I left for a bit to attend undergrad at Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!) where I majored in Creative Writing. After that I started my teaching career in the Mississippi Delta through Teach for America. It was a transformative experience and brought me into the world of education. Since I did not have an education degree, I always felt like I was missing something, so it was with a full heart and many tears that I left Mississippi and came home to attend UTSA for my Masters. I graduated in December 2019 with a Masters in Literacy, and am now daydreaming about pursuing my E.D. (but I'm not quite ready yet 👩🎓).
It's a Great Day to be a Jaguar! 🐾🐾🐾
