Mrs. Jessica Kerich

Welcome to Mrs. Kerich's Class! There are few things I would like you to know about me. First, I am a Arizona State University graduate with a Bachelor of Science in elementary education and special education. I am highly qualified in ELA. I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I have been teaching for 16 years now and I have been at Sonoran Foothills from when it opened.

I have been married to my husband Jason for 12 years. We have an amazing son, Jameson Daniel (9) and a wonderful daughter, Lila Christine (6). They are the light of my life and I am sure the kiddos will know a lot about them by the end of the year :-). I love all types of pets. I have a dog named Lucy. She is a mutt that actually smiles! It looks mean, but she just shows those teeth with love! I love coffee, Diet Coke, and anything Caramel! I love helping my students become the very best learners that they can be.

This year will be a very interesting and challenging school year for all students. Our classroom will be one where the student excels academically as the year progresses. I expect all class and homework assignments to be turned in on a regular basis and outstanding class behavior. I WILL CHALLENGE YOUR CHILD TO REACH OPTIMAL LEVELS :) I plan to make learning fun and exciting. My goal is to motivate my students so that together they can be students in the whole world!
I am very open and believe that it has to be a partnership to make academics a success. PLEASE reach out to me if there is anything that I can help you with. I PROMISE that I will work with you to make sure your child is successful!
