My name is Jill Perez and I'm honored to be your child's teacher and to be part of such a wonderful school and community. I look forward to a year full of learning and new adventures. To share a little about myself. I am a native Texan and grew up in San Antonio. I have a degree in Early Childhood from UTSA and attended graduate school at Sierra Nevada College. This will be my 13th year teaching and my ninth year teaching first grade. I am a mom to three wonderful children ages 14, 13, and 2. In my spare time I enjoy running, being outdoors, and relaxing on the beach. My goal as an educator is to inspire a love of learning and creativity in all children by being a positive influence and providing a nurturing environment.
