About Ms. Kerr
Hello, my name is Laura Kerr. I love being a "Gilchrist Grizzly". I have been a part of the Gilchrist family for 21 years. I have taught kindergarten and first grade.
I was born and raised in Orlando, FL. I began my college career at Valencia Community College where I received my AA degree. I continued my college career at the University of Central Florida where I received my BS in Education. Go Knights!!! I have to admit though that I am a NOLE fan at heart!!!
Family is very important to me. I love spending time with my son, Charlie. He is a handsome redhead that will be finishing his last year in middle school.
During my free time I love going to the beach, reading, watching FSU football, and my guilty pleasure is to just relax and watch TV.
My goal as a teacher is to help make a difference in my student's lives. I want to help them learn, teach them responsibility, and inspire them to be their best. The one thing that drives me as a teacher is my love of educating students. In the classroom we work together as a family, we learn together, we trust each other, and we feel safe to take chances when learning new concepts. As your child enters first grade this year there will be a big jump from kindergarten to first grade as your child is introduced to all the rigor of the first grade curriculum. Reading and math will be a huge focus. These are the areas that I will work with your child to help them achieve the highest level of growth they can this year. I look forward to working with and receiving support from my families this year in order to help the children make this a wonderful year of learning and growing!
