I am Miss Perez! This is my fourth year being an educator. I was raised in Channelview and I am a CHS graduate. I earned a BA in Psychology with a minor in legal studies from The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Go Runners! After earning my Bachelor's degree I joined an alternative certification program which allowed me to obtain my teaching certificate.
I joined the Aguirre Bulldog Family in January 2015. I started off teaching ESL (English as a Second Language), but now I am teaching my first love... Math! This will be my third year teaching math, but second year teaching 7th grade Pre-ap math. I feel so fortunate to be able to return to my hometown to teach and inspire students to be the best they can be! It is very important to me that my students become comfortable with math and know that it is ok to make mistakes. I believe that we learn best through trial and error.
Aside from being a teacher at Aguirre I am a coach. I LOVE sports! I go for every Houston team although it has been rough these last couple of years. I not only love watching sports, but I love being active and I grew up playing sports. So it makes me very happy that I am able to coach volleyball, basketball, and track here at Aguirre.
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to get to know me a little. I look forward to meeting all of my new students and having a great year with them!
