In her own words…

“Teaching my first graders is more than a profession to me. It is a constantly changing path that I fully commit myself to each day with enthusiasm…I provide the positive encouragement that is needed for a successful learning environment.”

In the words of others…

“I had the good fortune of having one of my own children in Claudia’s classroom. We had been struggling with our son for years as he was among the youngest of his grade level and full of energy. On the day for our parent/teacher conferences, Ms. Perez called us in to talk about our son’s performance. To our surprise, Ms. Perez began to show us all of the wonderful work our son had accomplished in her class.”
Carol Salva, Spring Branch ISD Teacher on Special Assignment

A strength that I appreciate, as an educator and and as a parent, is Claudia’s focus on driving results. When you walk into her classroom, you will see how she sets her students up for success. Her approach to homework is powerful and reinforces the work she focuses on for the week.”
