Hello! I am Mrs. Kerr and I am so excited to be teaching English Language Arts this year in Benge. This will be my first year teaching in my own classroom. I completed my student teaching last year in kindergarten. I was born and raised in southern Idaho, but I currently live outside of Winona with my husband of 6 years, and our daughter Hallie who is 4 years old. I love teaching because I love to help children learn and grow. I am looking forward to this year. See you soon!
I grew up in Ritzville and graduated from Ritzville High School before
attending college at the University of Idaho and BYU. There, I graduated with
my Bachelor's degree. I taught in Utah for 12 years, and I farmed throughout
my years there too, learning about irrigation and growing hay, oats, barley,
and corn. I appreciate farmers and ranchers for the good they do for us all!
My wife, Brandy, and I have four children. They are Brinley (12th grade),
Baylor (10th grade), Bridger (8th grade), and Baxter (4th grade). The
youngest attends Benge School District while the three older kids attend
Lind-Ritzville. They enjoy school, friends, family, and sports. They love
Ritzville as much as my wife and I do.
Our family enjoys time together at my parent's lake cabin at Priest. We also
usually venture down to Utah to see my wife's family at least once every year.
We are always dreaming about our next big vacation, but for now, we're
content to work on our new home in town. There are always a list of projects
We have high expectations for our students academically and socially. We enjoy
teaching and helping students to do their best.
