The philosophy Mrs. Perozo teaches by has an emphasis on long-term success. She notes, “My goal is not only to help struggling students become more successful, but also to instill confidence to become life-long learners. Motivating students to be the best that they can be is very important to me.”
Mrs. Perozo believes her colleagues would describe her as hardworking and organized, but in her free time, she likes to focus on family and fun. She comments, “I enjoy spending time with my husband and two boys, Aiden and Austin. We love to watch movies, shop and play.”
