Welcome to Ms. Perez's page!
Welcome! My name is Katy Perez. I grew up in the Chicago area and moved to Columbia to attend Mizzou. This is my 12th year teaching Spanish here at Smithton. Prior to Smithton I taught in New Bloomfield, MO & before that in Homewood, IL where I grew up. Growing up in Chicago has kept me a Bears fan and I'm holding out for a Superbowl Shuffle 2.0.
I am not a native Spanish speaker, but began studying the language when I was in middle school. Spanish was always my favorite class in school. I hope to create a positive classroom environment where students are actively learning to read, write, speak and listen to the Spanish language.
