Let me introduce myself.  My name is Kellie Silcox Perez and the students call me Ms. Perez.  I obtained my teaching degree from Concordia College.  I received my Masters in Education Administration from St. Mary’s.  I’m three classes away from being licensed as an Elementary Principal.  I’ve been teaching for twenty-three years.  Twenty-one years with the Minneapolis School District as a SPEN teacher, fourth/fifth grade teacher, first/second grade teacher and a reading teacher and 2 years teaching EBD in Florida.

I also held a job working for Scholastic Books as a Read 180 teacher trainer for the Midwest Region. This reading program targets students who are reading below grade level.  I trained and taught Read 180 for two years with the Minneapolis School District

I have held numerous duties during my time in the Minneapolis School District. I was co-chair of the Leadership Team and Site Council as well as the first/second grade Lead Teacher.  Also, I have been a very active member of the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers Union taking on the role of Building Union Steward.  Currently I'm on the ILT Committee and Site Inducation Coordinator for new teachers in our building.

I look forward to getting to know you better as the year progresses. We have a very special year ahead of us and I’m grateful to be an integral part of the journey.
