Ms. Perkins  

I was born in Elko Nevada and graduated from Spring Creek High School. I love living in Elko and plan to be here for a long time. I have two amazing boys ages 1 and 5. After graduating from high school I always knew I wanted to be in a field where I could help kids. While attending the University of Nevada Reno I worked in the pediatric department at St. Mary’s Hospital and as a teacher at Sierra Kids. Through these experiences I decided I wanted to pursue a future in education. I graduated with my Bachelors in Elementary Education from Great Basin College and my Masters in Administration from Grand Canyon University. I taught both 1st and 3rd grade for a total of six years and am going on my third year as an administrator. I love working at EIAA and love all that we stand for. We have a great staff always striving to grow and provide our students with a solid, well rounded, and up to date education.


Ms. Perkins’ Mission Statement

My mission as principal of EIAA is to motivate, inspire, and support my teachers and students by providing a safe, secure loving environment full of trust, respect, compassion and empathy to allow teachers and students to think critically, embrace challenges, develop their special talents, and promote self-efficacy.


My Beliefs:

  • I recognize parents as the primary educators and believe that good parent-teacher relationships are necessary for maximum school success.

  • I believe all teachers and students have their personal strengths that need to be respected, built upon and celebrated.

  • I believe learning should be meaningful and driven by student needs and the common core standards.

  • I believe it is not only important to help students grow cognitively but also emotionally and socially.

I was born in Japan, and raised all over the United States. Both my parents were in the military and we were constantly on the move. In 2004 I graduated from Elko High School and promptly joined the United States Navy, where I spent the next 4 years on active duty. I got out of the military in 2008 as a YN2, choosing instead to put being a mom first while attending night school. Still having no idea what to do with my life I ended up with many, many credit hours and an AAS in General Education.  My family and I moved back to Elko in 2012, deciding this is where we wanted to raise our kids. I have been in various fields of administration for over 15 years, enjoying the fast pace and ability to help others. I am very excited about this new chapter in my life and thoroughly enjoy seeing all these amazing kids on a daily basis.  They definitely keep things interesting and I look forward to watching them all go on to do great things.

I was born in Reno, Nevada a very long time ago and raised in Lovelock, Nevada where the founder is my 4th great grandfather. (so yes, the roots run deep!) I am an only child raised in a whole family of teachers. Both of my parents dedicated more than 42 years each to the profession and most of my cousins all followed suit. I was determined to change courses!


I attended the University of Nevada-Reno where I obtained a business degree. I worked for the City of Lovelock for 13 years before moving to Elko to become the City Clerk. I held this position for eight years when I decided that I would fulfill a life-long dream by opening my own business in downtown Elko.


I opened Simple Pleasures Bed and Bath in 2005. In 2007, I was asked if I would be willing to substitute teach, which turned into a full-time need. In 2009, I decided to go back to school to obtain my degree in education. In 2012, I closed the store and began this new venture in teaching. (yes, I definitely got the "I told you so's" from my family!)


I began my teaching career in 2012 at EIAA in the fourth grade. The following year I moved to the middle school teaching reading, writing, and social studies, which I LOVED! Reading and history have always been a passion of mine, so this became a dream job for me. I began teaching middle school math in, 2016-17,  instead of social studies, and continued to teach ELA until 2019.


In September of 2015, I started working towards my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership, which I completed in 2017.  In 2019, I  began teaching middle school math in the mornings and worked as Vice Principal in the afternoons.  Starting in this next year, I will be moving out of the classroom and working as a full-time administrator in the Vice Principal role.

I have no regrets about the career paths I have taken, although, I have found that teaching has brought me so many more moments of pride than any of the other careers I have chosen. Watching the constant growth students make while discovering the possibilities that lie ahead of them is something that I cherish everyday.
