During the summer, Communication & Media Arts High School had changes in the staff for the current academic year.
One of the new staff members is Dr. Perk, who is the new assistant principal. Perk has been in the field of education for 16 years. She started off as a teacher, got promoted to a teacher consultant and is now an assistant principal.
Growing up, she said she experienced many setbacks and adversities. She went on several interviews, didn’t get selected, and never gave up.
“I think the biggest lesson I learned in life, is to persevere no matter what,” she said. “ … Life is about decisions and I am in charge of my own destiny.”
Also new to CMA, Mr. Westcott is the new digital media teacher; Mr. Davis and Ms. Sparkman as our new counselors, as well as Ms. Porter and Mr. Blount as our new academic interventionists.
