About Me

My name is Amy Kerkstra and I will be your student's third grade teacher this year.  While this is my first year at Peirce School, I have been teaching for seven years.  I have previously taught at Benjamin Banneker School in Englewood and Charles Kozminski School in Hyde Park.  I hold two master's degrees in education, both from DePaul University, as well as a bachelor's degree from the University of Missouri.  I am excited to be your child's teacher this year, and look forward to a fun and successful year!
