Assistant Principal

Ms. Judilcia Perez is from the Dominican Republic and was proudly raised in the Washington Heights section of New York City. Ms. Judilcia attended Stony Brook University in Long Island, a place she called home for the duration of her four years in undergraduate college. At Stony Brook University she obtained her Bachelor’s degree of Social Work, from which she transitioned to Hunter College in New York City to pursue her Masters of Social Work with a concentration in Children, Youth and Families. Upon completion of this Master’s program, Ms. Judilcia obtained her license in Social Work and became an LMSW. From very early on Ms. Judilcia knew that she had a strong desire to help those in her community and a particular passion for education and youth development. She engaged in youth development work ranging from school systems to working closely with grassroots organizations in her community to deliver services, raise awareness and offer advocacy on the needs of our youth and families. Because of this, she chose to pursue a career with the Department of Education and is now a School Social Worker at Claremont International High School where she is fulfilling that vision of working hands on with youth and families. Her favorite things about Claremont International High School are the students and her colleagues. She is touched everyday by the resiliency her students demonstrate, as well as the drive of her colleagues who put so much thought and effort into providing their students with the tools they need to be successful both academically and socially, by creating a safe learning space. In addition to education and youth development, Ms. Judilcia is incredibly passionate about traveling and seeing different parts of the world. She is always calculating her next travel move!

 

“Often I feel I go to some distant region of the world to be reminded of who I really am. There is no mystery about why this should be so. Stripped of your ordinary surroundings, your friends, your daily routines, your refrigerator full of your food, your closet full of your clothes -- with all this taken away, you are forced into direct experience. Such direct experience inevitably makes you aware of who it is that is having the experience. That's not always comfortable, but it is always invigorating." ~Michael Crichton, Travels
