Baldwin County Teacher of the Year winner diversifies students



“Mrs. Perdue teaches beyond her classroom walls. She exposes her students to many lessons that they cannot get within those walls,” Clark said of Perdue during the ceremony. “Mrs. Perdue believes in teaching more than just academics, she tries to instill in her students how to be positive role models by involving them in many service projects. She builds relationships with her students that provide them with the extra support they need.”

Braziel announced the system winner and presented Perdue with gifts from Captain D’s, Chick-fil-A, LongHorn Steakhouse, Pickle Barrel, McDonald’s, Golden Corral, Coca Cola, Jeanie’s Flower & Gift Shop, Blossoms Florist, Kinetix, Designing Line, Oconee Vendor, Maggie Lane, Monograms & More, Belk, Baldwin Bowling Center, Express Car Wash & Lube and Exchange Bank. Perdue was also awarded with a $500 check from Louie Herron Toyota, $750 check from MidSouth Federal Credit Union and $100 from the Baldwin County School Nutrition Department. 

“I feel very spoiled. We all really appreciate those sponsors in the community for showing their appreciation and recognizing how hard we work in our community,” Perdue said. “The administration at Creekside is very supportive. My family has been very supportive of my efforts, including my husband Jared. When I was in high school, my teacher who convinced me to be a teacher was Sandra Worsham; she inspired me to pursue this career.”


Perdue has been teaching in Baldwin County for 10 years. She graduated with an undergraduate degree in early childhood education from Georgia College in 2003, followed by a master’s degree from Nova Southeastern in 2009. She taught one year at the Early Learning Center and four years at Blandy Hills. She has led and sponsored several extracurricular activities in her school such as the school news program, Positive Behavior Support team and student math team.
