Hi! My name is Caitlin Kerr. I am a third grade teacher at Fisher Elementary. This is my first year teaching as a general education teacher.
What do you like best about what you do?
I love working with a group of students who are diversified culturally. Each day brings something new and interesting. Not only are the students learning, but each day I learn something new as well. Teaching is the most rewarding career. I am proud to be a part of Central Valley!
What event here at Central Valley CSD has made/makes a difference to you personally and in your career?
Working with such helpful and supportive staff has made me feel right at home. The committees such as PBIS are great. It is encouraging for students and sets a view for all to focus on everyday values and traits.

I was a waitress at Piggy Pat’s BBQ for 15 years. I was a former tutor for students with disabilities and a teacher assistant in special education for three years.
