My name is Ellen Buhrow, and this is my 20th year teaching at Perkins. I taught Title Reading for 3 years, and have been in First Grade for 17! I want my classroom to be a safe place for kids to make friends, spread kindness, and do their best, everyday. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and being outdoors.
My name is Janelle Conry and I have been teaching since 2000. I taught at Perkins Elementary for my first 13 years and then taught 4th grade in Earlham, Iowa and spent the last three years as the Instructional Coach in Earlham. I am back at Perkins and I am loving it! I attended Northwest Missouri State University and obtained my Masters in Education through Viterbo.
I live in Earlham with my husband Jeremy and our three children. During my free time I watch my children play sports. Between the three of them I watch softball, baseball, basketball, volleyball, track, and football.
