Jeremy Perrin is originally from Minnesota, and is pleased to move his family back here after living in Lima, Peru for the past nine years, where he was the Principal of an International Baccalaureate School. Jeremy received his B.A in English from St. John’s University, his M.A. in Education from the University of St. Thomas, and his Administrative Licensure from Capella University. With over twenty years of experience in education, he has enjoyed teaching courses in immersion programs around the globe-- ranging from Language Arts to Theory of Knowledge in the International Baccalaureate Diploma program. Jeremy is passionate about literacy interventions, using data to make decisions, student well-being, and Education for Sustainable Development, and he was honored to be invited by UNESCO to present at an ESD conference in China on that topic. Attending International Baccalaureate training and school leadership coursework in Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru has only helped confirm Jeremy’s strong conviction that the IB Curricular model, the process of inquiry, and the IB Learner Profile attributes and attitudes are essential to developing global citizenship, as well as fostering social, emotional and academic skills. He is very excited to be joining a community such as ISLA, and working with a team of such skilled teachers and staff, a dedicated and accomplished cadre of volunteers and Board members, and a remarkable group of IB learners. When Jeremy is not at ISLA, he enjoys, reading, gardening, and engaging his family of four in all of the outdoor opportunities that Minnesota has to offer.
