MAT Elementary Education
My name is Stephanie Perkins and I am a first-year kindergarten teacher at Glendale-Kenly Elementary. I grew up in Columbia, Maryland with my parents and two younger siblings. I earned my bachelor's degree in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism from West Virginia University in June 2015. I spent approximately two years working as an intern the US Forest Service, where I lived in Oregon, Washington State, and Vermont. While I worked in the Pacific-Northwest, my family moved to Wilmington, NC (in June 2015). In January of 2017, I moved back to Wilmington and began work as a Medical Records Auditor for a local data management company.
In 2019, I was accepted to UNCW's accellerated MAT Elementary Education program and graduated with my degree in Dec 2020.
Upon graduation, I was immediately welcomed into the GKE family! I joined GKE in January 2021 as the fifth-grade virtual teacher. Since then, I have also worked as a lead teacher in a first-grade classroom during the Johnston County Summer Learning Program. I am delighted to work as a kindergarten lead teacher and look forward to the many new opportunities/discoveries that we will make during the 2021-2022 year.
