Parallel lines have so much in common, it's a shame they will never meet. Har har har.
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! By visiting this site, you will find additional information that may be interesting and informative. First, I would like to introduce myself.
My name is Rachel Perkins and I grew up in San Jose, CA. I attended California Distinguished Schools until high school. My first 2 years of high school was spent at a NCLB "needs improvement" school. At the first chance to transfer out, I transferred to the newest and best scoring high school in the district for the remaining 2 years of high school.
By much of a disappointment, I reached AP Calculus my Junior year of high school without the fundamental math understanding needing to take on Calculus. I was highly discouraged of my favorite subject dropping out of AP Calculus junior year, flying through AP Statistics senior year, and pursued something unrelated in college.
I earned my B.A. in Psychology from San Diego State University in a mere 3.5 years before realizing I didn't want to attend graduate school in Psychology. In preparation, I studied for the GRE, a graduate entrance exam, in which I found out how much I missed "doing Math".
I found myself working "backwards" and attending community college after my Bachelor's degree. I finally retook Calculus then the progression of all upper-level math courses offered at community college. I spent 18 months tutoring/working in a public and private school setting from Kindergarten to community college before earning my credential.
I earned my Master's Degree in Teaching as well as my single-subject credential from University of California, Irvine. I strongly believe in students learning a deeper conceptual understanding of math, as well as procedural knowledge. Having taught for a few years now, I am continuing to evolve my practice to better met the needs and demands of my students.
In addition to being the Yearbook Teacher, I was the most spirited teacher (3 years in a row), the Animal Club adviser, and the Cosmetology Club Adviser.
On a more personal level, I am a huge fan of sports (played Volleyball and Softball in high school) as well as music (was in leadership roles in band through college).
If you find a good math joke, I'd love to hear it.
What a beautiful morning with the class of 2016 for Senior Sunrise
