My name is Bertha Perez, I am the Teacher Associate for Mrs. Crowdis’ class. This is my 7th year working in Early Childhood and my 2nd year working for Des Moines Public Schools. I have a Bachelor Degree in Education from Mexico. I have a husband, who I have been married to for 11 years. I also have two kids, a 10 year old girl named Gisele and a 4 year old boy named Diego. I love dancing, reading, cooking, and spending time with my family. I enjoy working with children in preschool and seeing how their knowledge and skills grow throughout the year.
