Dr. Terisa R Pearce

Welcome to 5h grade. I am very excited to be at East Elementary and look forward to working with our wonderful students. I just moved to Missouri from Texas and am excited for new adventures.

This will be my 19th year in education. Fourteen years have been spent in elementary and middle school and five years at the the university level. I am married with two grown children. My daughter, Baylee, is a teacher in Texas, and my son, Connor, is working towards becoming a chef. I have many hobbies and interests such as reading, running, and crafting. I enjoy watching the Texas Rangers (win or lose) and am looking forward to some small town football.

I am passionate about learning and have high expectations for my students. I look forward to working with my students and parents in a partnership that will promote success and growth. I believe that communication, trust, honesty, and integrity are key characteristics for building a community of learners and will continuously strive to provide an atmosphere that enables all students to feel comfortable, safe, and valued.
