Jenae' Scott-Robinson, Interim Principal

It is an honor to serve as Assistant Principal at Barret's Chapel School.  I count everyday as a blessing!  I absolutely adore children! My goal is to serve with empathy and integrity.  Students should have compassion with others, and have honor in all endeavors while achieving curriculum expectations.

I have a Master's Degree in Education and an Education Specialist Degree in Administration and Supervision from Union University.  In my tenure, I taught for nine years at White Station Middle School.  In addition, I served as an Instructional Coach and Assistant Principal (Shelby Oaks Elementary) for Shelby County Schools.




Natasha Perkins, Assistant Principal

I received my Bachelor's degree from University of Memphis in Education.  After 8 years of teaching at Mt. Pisgah Middle School, I decided to advance my career by pursuing a graduate degree in Gifted Education from CBU.  A few years after that, I decided to pursue a graduate degree in English as a Second Language (ESL) at the University of Memphis.  I taught ESL for Shelby County Schools for 3 years traveling from school to school assisting students with learning the English language.  Next, I decided to take a job with Shelby County Schools' Talent Management Department to help coach and offer professional development for teachers and staff throughout the county.  This job lead me straight to my current position at Barret's, which I thank God for everyday!

I have a wonderful husband, Coach John Perkins, whom is also an educator right here at Barret's.  We have an amazing son, John (JD) Perkins IV, who I am proud to say is also a Barret's Chapel Wildcat.  My husband and I met teaching middle school at Mt. Pisgah.  We have coached basketball together for over 12 years.  Together, we currently coach the Barret's Wildcats! I love being able to teach and coach student athletes along side my husband and our young son.

I am a people person and love working with each and every Barret's Wildcat! Our Barret's Family is like no other! I feel so very blessed to be at The Best Kept Secret in Shelby County!
