Mrs. Pereira


I am honored to be serving the Pittsburg community for my sixth year here at Martin Luther King Jr. Junior High School. I teach 8th Grade U.S. History and the 6th Grade AVID elective.

Scholars in 8th Grade U.S. History will learn about the founding of our nation through Reconstruction. Each scholar will practice historical thinking skills particularly the analysis of primary sources and learn history through the lens of multiple perspectives.

Scholars in the 6th Grade AVID elective will become familiar with key elements of the AVID program as they begin their journeys towards college. AVID scholars will participate in college field trips and experience guest speakers share their journeys to various career paths.

I am also the Program Leader for the 8th Grade Washington D.C. Trip. This years trip is scheduled for April 12th - 17th, 2020. Please email me for more information on this trip of a life time. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time at You can also sign up for my classroom reminders through Remind by texting @hist8mrsp to 81010 for 8th Grade History or @mlkavid6 for 6th grade AVID.
