Suitland educator named ‘Teacher of the Month’ -- Gazette.Net


A Suitland High School business education teacher was named “Teacher of the Month” by Prince George’s County Public Schools.

Joyce Perkinson has been an educator for more than 40 years and has been with PGCPS for the last 10 years.

She is a part of Suitland’s Academy Design Team, is the chairwoman for the school’s business department and is a sponsor for Suitland’s National Honor Society chapter, according to school system officials.

Perkinson said in a statement that she loves teaching because of the lives she impacts on a daily basis.

“It gives me a sense of fulfillment seeing the progress students make both academically and socially as they prepare for their next endeavors,” said Perkinson in a statement.

Suitland Principal Nathan Newman said she was instrumental in developing the new Business Management and Academy of Finance, which will begin next year.
