Congratulations to Roya Alizadegan Perkins for receiving The SPARK Awards 2020 Education Educator Award for their philanthropic work in our community.
Roya Alizadegan is a Special Education Teacher at Houston High School with Germantown Municipal School District who continually goes above and beyond for the students she serves.
“She has quietly exemplified servant leadership in every aspect of her day. She mentors her fellow staff members by assisting on paperwork requirements, consulting on hard cases, tutoring their students, and fostering all stakeholder relationships by holding professional learning communities and sharing research based practices. She organizes all accommodations for state-wide assessments and advocates with ACT for students who require these accommodates in order to receive the best opportunities.”
During the COVID-19 school closure, Ms. A (as her students call her) tutored students at her house that were in fear of not graduating. She loves her job, her students and the families she serves.
