Hello everybody! This is my 7th year of teaching 4th/5th graders, and my fourth year here at Ann K. Heiman. I have two Masters Degrees: one in Performing Arts from CU-Boulder, one in Elementary Education from UNC. I am married to Mr. Kerkes (AKA Indiana Jones); have two daughters Hannah (15) and Fionna (13); 4 sassy chickens, 1 crazy dog, and 1 fabulous bearded dragon (Oscar, our class pet). I love to travel all over the world, read great books, and explore the outdoors through Geocaching and Kayaking. I also train in Korean Karate and love Science Fiction! It's going to be a fun and exciting year, and I can't wait to meet you all!
