Perkins High School is proud to announce that Jodi Brunner has been hired as a mathematics teacher. The Perkins Local School District Board of Education unanimously voted to hire Mrs. Brunner during its regular meeting on Wednesday, February 9.
Beginning Tuesday, February 22, Mrs. Brunner will teach Algebra I at Perkins High School. She fills the vacancy created in January when former PHS teacher Adam Hartley left the district to pursue another career opportunity.
Mrs. Brunner has 15 years experience teaching in a variety of settings and all levels of mathematics, including algebra, geometry, and calculus, said assistant PHS Principal Drew Davie. She most recently taught mathematics at Buckeye Community School and Townsend Community School.
“Mrs. Brunner is someone that is high energy, extremely positive, and will work hard to build positive relationships with her students,” Mr. Davie said. “She is also someone that will work hard to push her students to grow and achieve. We are very excited to have Mrs. Brunner join our team at PHS.”
Mrs. Brunner is certified in Integrated Mathematics (Grades 7-12) and has a master's degree in curriculum. She has experience teaching both advanced and low-motivated students, Mr. Davie said.
Mrs. Brunner has three daughters who attend Perkins Schools. She also is the sister of High School Principal Jeff Harbal.
