A Passion For Teaching That Is Everlasting

John Perri started as a teacher in the Clark County School District when he was 22 years old.

Now, 50 years later, John Perri is still going strong. He is a math teacher at Southwest Career and Technical Academy.

“I started in 1969 — same year as man landed on the moon as a reference,” Perri told the Sun. “I’ve taught every math course that ever existed, and I taught math courses that don’t exist anymore.”

The Las Vegas Sun’s Camalot Todd profiled the enthusiasm and dedication of Perri who, Todd writes, “has mustered up more than a few ways to keep students engaged in learning concepts from puzzles that illustrate geometric principles to prime numbers used in factoring for algebra.”
