Degrees and Certifications:

Dr. Terisa R Pearce


Welcome to my webpage. I have been in education for 22 years. Most of my time has been in Texas, but I am honored to have the opportunity to spend the rest of my educational career in Missouri. I joined Waynesville R-6 in 2018 and have loved being a Tiger ever since. I currently teach K-5 art at East Elementary and participate in the Aspiring Administrator program. I have a deep love for learning and kids, so teaching was the perfect career choice. 

My husband and I moved to MO in 2018 and built an amazing log cabin on our land in hopes of someday retiring and spending our time in the Ozark woods. We enjoy the outdoors and spending time with friends and family. We have two children who still live in Texas. Our daughter is an Instructional Coach and teacher, and our son is an HVAC tech.
