Hello Friends,
We had a great year. I hope you all have a wonderful summer. Get outdoors and enjoy the warm weather. Take time to read to your children. Should you need to get in touch with me, I can be reached at perweipj@pwcs.edu. I look forward to seeing the kids in August.

ABOUT ME

Hello friends!!! I wanted to share a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in New York City. I moved to Virginia in 2002. I was a stay at home dad for 11 years. When my children were both in school full time, I decided to become a substitute teacher. I quickly realized I loved working with young children, especially ones with developmental disabilities. I became one of the Pre-Kindergarten teachers at Signal Hill Elementary in January 2020. I have a Masters degree in Early Childhood Special Education from George Mason.
