Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Cathee Perkins
My name is Cathleen Perkins and I had the great fortune to grow up here in Tahoe City. My education began with Tahoe Lake Elementary School and I graduated from North Tahoe High School. I went on to earn my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from California State University in Chico. Following that, I received my Master of Science degree in Counseling and my Multiple Subject Teaching and Pupil Personnel Services Credentials from California State University in Sacramento.
I have a wide array of experience in the field of education. I taught third grade at Lincoln Way Elementary School, fourth grade at Skyridge Elementary and finally fifth grade at Rock Creek Elementary School in Auburn for thirteen years. During that time, I had the opportunity to participate in a Fulbright teacher exchange program in Bristol, England in 1990 . In 1996, I moved back to Tahoe City to raise my three children. I taught multiple grade levels at Truckee Elementary and Tahoe Lake Elementary before becoming the school counselor at Tahoe Lake and Donner Trail Elementary Schools. I have been enjoying this position for the last seventeen years. I consider myself a lifelong learner who loves to work with students and help them reach their utmost potential.
I have three daughters: Hannah, who will be graduating from UC Santa Cruz in June, Haley, who is a junior at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo and Lyla, who is in fifth grader at North Tahoe School. Tahoe is an amazing environment in which to raise children. I am so grateful to find myself living and working in my home town!
