My name is Mr. Peralez (or Mr. P as the students call me) and I will be teaching English IV and Speech as well as coaching the UIL Prose/Poetry teams this year at Abernathy High School! This will be my 4th year in education, however I am brand new to Abernathy ISD and I already feel as if I bleed Maroon and White!! I have worked previously for Lubbock ISD and Meadow ISD. After graduating from Idalou High School, I attended Lubbock Christian University where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary English Education with minors in theater & Christian Ministry. Before my teaching career began, I spent 11 years working in Youth & Children's ministry as well as serving as a summer camp counselor and leader for 5 years. I understand how valuable and precious your children are, and I am excited to get to mentor and teach them as they prepare to become productive members of society.
I am married to my college sweetheart and best friend, Elizabeth, who is a Director of Education at Sylvan Lubbock. We currently do not have any children, however we consider our 2 goodlen doodle puppies as such. In my spare time I enjoy holding on to my childhood by binge watching Mister Rogers Neighborhood, attending Abernathy athletic events, and of course spending time with and traveling alongside Mrs. Elizabeth.
I am beyond excited to join this great community and awesome school district. Growing up in a small town has given me the love and appreciation for that "close-knit" family feel. I am the product of a small town school where I was heavily involved in numerous activities, so I come bearing the knowledge and memories that many of our students have, so if there is ever anything I can help you or your child with, please do not hesitate to shoot me an email. I am looking forward to a great year, and as always, "IT'S A GREAT DAY TO BE A LOPE!"
