Hello My Name Is...

Keri Knutson

 

I have lived in Oklahoma for 13 years.  I grew up in New Jersey and went to college in North Carolina.  My husband Dustin and I have been married for 12 years and have three children.  Owen is in 5th grade at DCIS, Xavier is here at GV in 4th, and Kaylin is in 1st grade this year.  I have a BS in Elementary Education from Wake Forest University and a Masters in Early Childhood Education from UCO.  For the past 15 years, I have been in the field of early childhood education, whether it be teaching PreK-3, Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, or adjuncting at UCO.  I love educating future teachers and child development experts, but my heart will always be in a classroom working with young children and their families.  This is my 3rd year teaching Kindergarten at GV, and I absolutely LOVE it!  I feel beyond lucky to be teaching our youngest learners at the best school in the state. Kindergarteners are at the perfect age; they are so eager and curious.  They grow so much every year, in so many ways.  I am so excited for this school year and can't wait to get to know my new students and families!
