STAR LEADERSHIP TEAM
MELISSA PERKINS, BLUE STAR VIRTUAL LEARNING
CEO & FOUNDER
Starting with one Master Student and an outstanding homeschool mom, our CEO and Founder, Melissa Perkins, used her more than 23 years of education experience to found Blue Star Virtual Learning (BSVL). She creates an experience that celebrates the essential beauty of learning and accelerates young learners to self-mastery.
Melissa has held teacher licenses in North Carolina, Virginia, and Hawaii and holds a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. She has also served as a teacher trainer and instructional coach. A graduate of Meredith College, Melissa was awarded the distinguished NC Teaching Fellows full scholarship to pursue becoming a world class educator in 1992.
In addition to extensive experience as traditional classroom teacher and trainer, Melissa was afforded the opportunity to open and lead language schools in both Beijing and Shanghai, China.
Upon returning to the United States, she had the opportunity to serve as an adjunct professor for international students at Virginia Tech Language and Culture Institute at the Fairfax Virginia campus.
Despite her busy schedule, Melissa actively facilitates Master Student activities because it fuels her passion and devotion to delivering quality education for all children everywhere. You can reach her directly at email@example.com or 984-200-0069 Ext. 101.
