  Perry Higgins

Hello, Pearre Creek Panthers!  I am Perry Wayne Higgins.  I graduated from the University of Arizona in 1992 with a BA in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood Education.  I taught for 3 years in Arizona in 2nd and 3rd grades.  Then, my wife and I decided to move along with our new son, David, to Tennessee (away from all of our family) so she could pursue her dreams on being a Gospel songwriter. 


In Tennessee, I worked in Cheatham County Schools as a 6th grade behavior specialist and a Multi-age teacher for 8,9, and 10 year olds.  During this time, my daughter, Bethany was born.


I moved to Williamson County Schools and taught in Fairview Elementary for 13 years as a 1st grade teacher and a 5th grade teacher.  During that time, I received my Master of Education degree from Tennessee State University.


I then became an Assistant Principal at Overbrook School for two years, but decided that I missed working daily with students to help them achieve their dreams, so I have returned to teaching and am now a 5thgrade teacher at the greatest school I’ve ever been involved with.


My wife, Billy Jo, is currently the manager of the Dickson County Humane Society. She has only written one song since coming to Tennessee, though.  My son, David, is 19 years old and is a college sophomore at Christian Brothers University in Memphis, playing collegiate soccer and working on a law degree. My daughter, Bethany, is 17 years old and is a senior at St. Cecilia Academy in Nashville. We have 3 dogs and 2 cats and our house is busy all the time!


I love children.  I love being involved with children.  I love helping children achieve.  I love all the wondrous things children can do.  I am glad I am back in the classroom in a big way!  I have been in education for 20 years and I am so excited for my 21st year here at Pearre Creek Elementary!
