Marjorie Kerr
B.A. Liberal Studies – CSU Hayward ACSI Credential (pursuing)

Mrs. Kerr will soon begin her eleventh year at our school and has four children and three grandchildren. When she is not corralling middle-schoolers she enjoys traveling and has visited 49 of the 50 United States. (Currently working on her husband to take her to state #50…Hawaii!) One reason she enjoys teaching is because she agrees with Charles Dickens who said, “I love these little people; and it is not a slight thing, when they, who are so fresh from God, love us.”
