Mrs. Pereira

Hello and welcome!

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

I am very excited to once again welcome scholars in person for the '21-'22 school year. I hope to help all scholars grow not just academically, but personally as well. I strongly believe in fostering a love of learning and enjoy creating community within each of my classes. While the circumstances surrounding this school year may present new challenges, I am dedicated to helping each and every scholar achieve their best. 

Please feel free to contact me through email at You can also sign up for my classroom reminders through the Remind app. Please refer to the specfic class period for the cooresponding Remind code.
