Welcome to 4K! My name is Jennifer Perkins and I am excited about being your child's teacher this year. I have been teaching for 11 years and absolutely love being at "The Ridge," for we truly are a family. 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. We enjoy watching football and are avid Carolina Gamecocks fans.
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 email@example.com or via phone at 803-685-2000. Please keep in mind that if you reach out via phone, your call will be returned during my planning period, or after school hours.
