Leadership 2019-2020

President – Heather McEntire

As PTA President I hope to help foster an inclusive school community and support our students. I have 2 children at Peruvian and have worked in education in various capacities including being a third grade teacher, first grade teaching assistant, and assessment director. My message to all PTA members is, “Come as you are. Do what you can.”


Secretary – Tami Yamane

This will be my second year serving on the board as Secretary.  It has been so much fun and have met so many amazing parents and volunteers.  I currently have 2 children attending Peruvian Park and really enjoy being able to be a part of their school experiences.  I also work at the school 5 days a week on the playground and in the copy room so I will be around if you need any help or have questions!


Education VP – Emily Wall

Over the years, I’ve been a part of the PTA board at three of my children’s schools. I have had the privilege of serving as president and legislative vice president at Peruvian Park Elementary. I currently have children attending Peruvian Park Elementary, Midvale Middle School and Hillcrest High School. I have taught kindergarten and first grade and am currently teaching preschool. I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of our amazing school community!

Legislative VP – Charmayne Orton

My name is Charmayne Orton. I have served on the executive board of PTA for 10 consecutive years in many different capacities. I have served as  Co-President, Treasurer, and Secretary to name a few.
