Principal's Message


I would like to introduce, or reintroduce myself, as the principal for Kerr Middle School for the 2018-2019 school year.

I was born, raised and educated in District 130 and 218, and I have worked as a summer maintenance worker, teacher, summer school principal and principal during my career. I currently reside in Blue Island and have a combined 15 years of experience as a teacher and 18 years of experience as a building principal in District 130.

I am excited to return to Kerr as a building principal and I am looking forward to working alongside all stakeholders to lead Kerr Middle School as a member of the leadership team. Together, we look forward to developing a school that will provide opportunities to develop students academically and emotionally and prepare all for the challenges that will await our students as adulthood approaches.

As a resident of Blue Island, I have a personal stake in the success of our students and will always be available to ensure that staff, students and parents have an enjoyable experience at KMS. Please contact me with any questions or comments and together we will lead our students to great success!
