Dear Willow Dale Parents and Community Members,

    My name is Catherine Perkins. It is an honor and pleasure to serve as the Principal at Willow Dale Elementary School. I joined the Centennial School District in March 2013. The following will provide you with some insight into my experience and educational philosophy.

    Prior to dedicating my vocation to education, I worked in the healthcare and management fields. I attended Drexel University, where I received teacher certification in Secondary General Science, a Master of Science degree in The Science of Instruction, and Educational Leadership certification. Received my doctorate in Educational Leadership from Gwynedd Mercy University.  

    My career in education began in the Council Rock School District, where I served as a middle and high school teacher, Department Coordinator and District Curriculum Coordinator.  Prior to being appointed as the Principal at Willow Dale Elementary School, I held the positions of Director of Teaching and Learning, Principal at Log College Middle School, and Assistant Principal at Klinger Middle School.   I am excited to bring my diverse leadership experiences to Willow Dale Elementary School.

    I am looking forward to working with the students, parents, staff, and community in continuing to support and lead the excellent programs at Willow Dale Elementary School. By working together, we can assist our students in growing academically and attaining life-long success. Please know that I value your input and encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns.  


    Catherine A. Perkins, Ed.D.
