Our Media Center

A Message from the Media Specialist:

Greetings! I am happy to be a part of the WONDERFUL family at Perry Middle School. I have 10 years of teaching experience, and I am elated to complete my eleventh year at PMS as Media Specialist. In the past, I taught middle school math, high school math and middle school language arts in Burke and Houston counties.  I also served as Media Specialist at Westside Elementary School. I can honestly say that I love my career!

I received my Bachelor of Science in Middle Grades Education and Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction degrees at Augusta State University, my Media Specialist certification from Georgia Southern University and my Specialist in Education from Georgia Southern University.

I look forward to having another great year.  Please feel free to contact me at any time.

Thanks,

Quishawna Henderson
