Meet Coach Kerry

  1. Updates

This is Coach Kerry's second year as an official Recess Rockstar.  When she isn't leading recess or teaching a Class Game Time, Coach Kerry can be found in the hallways handing out high-fives to students and staff alike, encouraging healthy community.  She has also been known to put on a penguin suit and lead the whole school in the Cha Cha Slide during assemblies.  

What was your favorite recess game as a kid:
Kickball was da bomb when I was in school.

Has it changed now that you're a coach:
I still like kickball, but my favorite game now is probably Bethune Football.  I play it with the younger kids by throwing a football down the field.  Whoever touches the football first gets to run with it until they get tagged (two hand touch).  Then they bring it back to me for another round.

What is the best part of being a coach: 
Seeing all of the kids smiling and having fun.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go:
Australia.  It's been my life-long dream to be a surfer!
