Hi. My name is Ms. Perdomo and I am going to be your FLAME teacher this year! This will be my ninth year teaching in Marion County and my fifth year teaching at Eighth Street Elementary. Teaching is my passion! I am excited for all the exploring, learning and fun we will get to have together this year!
I have a Reading and ESOL endorsement with the University of Central Florida. I am currently working on my gifted endorsement from FLDRS. I have been honored twice as Teacher of the Year, as a first grade teacher at Evergreen Elementary and at Eighth Street Elementary. I continue to pursue professional development opportunities and explore educational research to stay up to date on the most effective teaching practices.
I grew up in Bohemia, New York and lived in Plantation, Florida for most of my school years. My family moved to Ocala and I currently live in Gainesville. The drive is beautiful and necessary as I love both places very much.
I have two Chihuahuas. Rupert (8) and Gordon (5) who I love very much. This past spring I bought a home with a big backyard. The boys like to chase each other around and smell flowers. My soon to be husband, Jorge and I are planning for our upcoming wedding. He is a musician/producer is Gainesville and my best friend.
I can’t wait to spend the next year learning and growing with you!
