Mrs. Whitley Perez

Hi! My name is Whitley Perez. I have been an educator for two years. This past year I taught 3rd grade here on the Mountain and it was the best! I also taught 3rd grade in my previous district, Whitfield County Schools. I attended Shorter University where I student taught 2nd grade in Rome City Schools, and I graduated with my degree in Elementary Education, and I received the “Elementary Education Award.” Teaching is something I have always felt called to do, and it is truly a passion of mine. I love the relationships I build with my students and coworkers! In my free time I love to hangout with my husband, family, and friends, try out new restaurants, and play sports! I am super excited for this next school year. Go Miners!
