It is with great enthusiasm that I serve as Principal of Perris High School. I have been in education for over 20 years and believe deeply that as educators we can make a huge difference in the lives of all of our students. Education is one of the things that I value the most. For most of my elementary school years I grew up and attended school in Tijuana, Mexico and for my secondary education, I attended schools in San Ysidro, California. I am fluent in Spanish and English and I can say that through my educational journey I benefitted from successful English Language Learner programs and I am also a proud alumni of the AVID program both as a student and tutor. Thanks to the AVID program I attended San Diego State University and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and then later pursued a Master’s degree in Educational Counseling, a PPS credential and an Administrative credential from National University. I have had the pleasure of working as a Counselor and as Assistant Principal at both the middle school and high school levels and I also taught high school students through my work with Mt. San Jacinto College. I am a life-long learner and believe in the power of continued growth through academics and experience. Perris High School, established in 1910, has a long-standing history and there is great pride within our community of alumni. We are unique in that this pride and culture of success here at PHS has led many of our alumni to return to our school to become classified and certificated staff members and even administrators. Our teaching staff believes in empowering our students to reach new levels of academic success and working together with site administration to do what is best for our students. Our Perris High School parents support our students and staff and entrust that we will be invested stakeholders in their students’ education by communicating regularly with them, working with them as partners, and maintaining high expectations of their students. It is a privilege, an honor, and with a deep and sincere sense of pride to represent Perris High School as Principal.
Hello All! My name is David Na’il. I was born in Riverside, CA. Though I typically am a home-body, I do enjoy physical activities and watching football and basketball games when I have the time. I graduated from Moreno Valley High School and then served in the military for about 7 years. I got out of the military and then earned my BA in English from Fayetteville State University - an HBCU (Historically Black College and University) and then taught for five years.
During my teaching career, I enrolled in the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and earned my master’s degree, and went into school administration. I have been there ever since. I am back home now (California) serving in the same administrative capacity and I truly enjoy what I do. This is my first year at PHS and I am indeed grateful for the opportunities given to me to serve our young people.
Education saved my life. It allowed me the opportunity to give back…to my mother who inspired the thought of me going to college in the first place, and to the community that I serve.
If there are any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to email me at david.na’email@example.com. Be well.
Hello, my name is Gypsi Perez and I was born in Los Angeles, California. Some of my hobbies include going to concerts/festivals, dancing, spending time with loved ones, traveling, and visiting the Disney theme parks. I started with the Perris Union High School District as an AVID Tutor at Pinacate Middle School and Perris High School and upon graduating from the University of Redlands, I was fortunate to get hired as a Mathematics Teacher at Perris High School. In 2021-2022, I became an Assistant Principal at Perris High School. I obtained my Master of Arts in Education and my Preliminary Administrative Service Credential from Azusa Pacific University.
Over the years, I have had the pleasure of teaching Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Business Math, and AVID 9th-AVID 12th. In addition, I have had many other roles at Perris High School. I became the AVID Coordinator at Perris High School a year after being hired as a teacher and I am proud to say that I was with the AVID program for 14 years. I truly enjoy being there for our students and families, especially when it comes to helping students figure out what's next for them after graduating from high school. Lastly, I am proud to announce that in 2019 I was recognized by Assembly Member Jose Medina in honor of the Day of the Teacher.
I look forward to continuing to work with all students, staff, and community members!

Hello, my name is Mike Overton and am excited to be back at Perris High School. I was born in Los Angeles, California and lived in Pasadena before moving to Perris when I was 15 years old. I attended Perris high and am a proud graduate of the class of 1994. I am a college graduate of Cal State San Bernardino where I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Business and my Masters degree in Education. I was a special education teacher for 12 years before moving into administration. I've coached baseball, softball, and golf at the high school level and have a love for all sports. Before entering the field of education I worked as a real estate broker and owned a restaurant in the Temecula area.
