Welcome to 3rd grade! My name is Jennifer Perkins and I am excited about being your child's teacher this year. I have been teaching for 10 years. However, the 2022-2023 school year is my first year at Cyril B. Busbee Elementary School. It is my desire to see each student reach his or her full learning potential. This year we will work collaboratively to learn through exploration, while fostering a rich learning environment in which school, and self-pride, are evident.
My hobbies include spending quality time with my family, camping, time with my faith-family, and volunteering within the community. My husband, Shane, and I have five children--Libby, Logan, Carl, Kimberly, and Layla. This year brings many new adventures my way, as I am co-coaching the Wagener-Salley High School War Eagles cheerleading team, with one of my Busbee colleagues. I love the game of football and am an avid Carolina Gamecocks fan.
It is my hope that your child has a wonderful year in "our" classroom. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, or concerns, that you may have. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 803-564-1000. Please keep in mind that if you reach out via phone, your call will be returned during my planning period, or after school hours.
