Emily Perez has big dreams. The Oak meadow Elementary fifth-grader wants to become an FBI agent when she grows up.

According to her teacher Sue Burkland, Emily has the drive to achieve her goal. The teacher praised the 11-year-old for taking solid steps toward improving her education during the Student of the Month ceremony at the Rotary Club of El Dorado Hills meeting earlier this month. Emily is smart, caring and respects her classmates, Burkland said.

Her efforts and desire to learn have helped her overcome obstacles, added Oak Meadow Principal Barbara Narez.

Emily received $50 and a plaque to celebrate her accomplishments. She was joined by her mom Tara Alexander and brother Andrew Perez, 10.
