The Teacher

From Mrs. Perkins

I am Head of Biology at Cambridge Home School. I have a first class BSc in Biology and a Masters degree in Primate Conservation from Oxford University.  I am also a qualified secondary school teacher with a PGCE.

Before becoming a teacher, I worked in a lot of animal environments such as a dairy farm and a Big Cat zoo. I also volunteered to go to a rainforest in Honduras, Central America to study the behaviour of black Howler monkeys.

I am passionate about Biology and love to share this with my students. There really is no better feeling than the satisfaction of watching young minds grow!
