My name is Jayden Kerr. I am a senior. EC-6th generalist. Raised in Tomball, TX.. blame it all on my roots I show up in boots everywhere I go. Transferred to Sam from Southern Mississippi in 2014. Love animals almost to the point of questioning, “why am I not a vegetarian?” Then I think of Chick- Fil- A and remember that’s why. Obsessed with those cheesy, but classic television shows, I love Lucy, Cosby Show yes, even the 90s classics, Full House and Friends. I’m a big time movie quoter and an amateur photographer. I have a twin. She’s the humorous one, I’m the athletic one. Suffers from a severe case of wanderlust. IN love with my dog named, Ruby.

So I will find the bright side on a cloudy day in the classroom. I am determined, therefore I lash determination on others. I approach with that determination that every student will do their best even when they are not good at it. I love variety so my teaching approach will be a little bit of everything and is constantly changing.
