Perry Facilities Improvement Plan

We are taking this opportunity to provide some information regarding the changes to Reedurban Elementary School this year.

First, I would like to take this opportunity to share my background in education before coming to Reedurban Elementary as principal.  My love of children has led to a career in education over the last ten years.  I have been fortunate to have served in all elementary grade levels in either general or special education settings.  The last four years have been spent in the Perry Local School District as an intervention specialist.  While at Perry I have enjoyed getting to know and working with both the children and the community.  The opportunity to serve as the Reedurban Elementary Principal is an honor and privilege.
