Hello, I'm Kerri. I teach 8th grade science and I love it! No, I'm not lying...they crack me up! Some people are just meant for middle school. I am a huge animal lover but only have dogs in my home. I am close with my family and spend lots of time with them and friends. I enjoy dinners out, the beach (any time of year), hikes/walks with the dogs, weekends away, volunteering, and even a night on the couch with company and a great movie. I've been told i'm an optimist and tend to always look for a bright side.
