Mrs. Sara Perry

Hello all! My name is Sara Perry and I am an Exceptional Children's Resource Teacher here at MCES. Teaching is a second career for me and I cannot think of a better second chance than this. This is my first year in this position and I am really excited to help your children learn and grow. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice from UNC- Pembroke and am working on my Master of Arts in Teaching Special Education. All three of my children have been at MCES since Pre-K/Kindergarten. I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, and our dog named Levi. We like to camp, hike, try new restaurants, and my husband and I totally love coffee. 


  • As a Exceptional Children's teacher, I teach multiple grade levels and subjects per day. If I am the EC teacher of your child, please contact me if you have questions about your child's EC schedule.
