Dr. Bettye H. Perkins is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Today’s Students Tomorrow’s Teachers (TSTT).

Dr. Perkins, an educator and former IBM executive, has spent the past 17 years developing and implementing educational programs to enhance the academic achievement of young people in New York and throughout the northeast. She is the recipient of many awards and proclamations acknowledging her outstanding achievement in educational leadership including the Special Parent Honoree Award from the New York State Education Department and the Pathfinder Award from the New York State Association of Women in Administration. Most recently, Dr. Perkins received the Milton A. Williams, Jr. Scholars in Education Award from the Westchester Children’s Museum.

Dr. Perkins earned a Bachelor’s degree in Education from North Carolina A&T State University, a Masters Degree in Education Administration from Pace University, and a Doctorate Degree in Educational Leadership and Urban Policy from Fordham University, where she documented TSTT as a new Regional Collaborative Pre-collegiate Minority Teacher Recruitment Model.  Her work was also published as a best practice for Human Capital Management Strategies by the American Association of School Personnel Administrators (AASPA) in July of 2009.

An avid tennis player, Dr. Perkins and her husband, John, live in Hartsdale, NY. They have enjoyed mentoring two teenage brothers, Christopher and Jamal, for the past ten years.
