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!
