Kerry Vanderwekken

I’m Kerry Vanderwekken, and I’m so excited to join the team at Neerlandia for the 2021-2022 year! I’m passionate about hands-on learning and including student interests in the classroom. I look forward to exploring our beautiful world with the grade 2s this coming year and developing and celebrating their strengths.

While I grew up in Edmonton, my husband is a past Neerlandia student, so it’s fun that I get to teach at “his” school. When I’m not teaching, I love reading, drinking tea, and crocheting, as well as hiking, camping, canoeing, and soccer. I’m also quite musical and I enjoy music through singing in choirs (and in the classroom) and playing

violin, piano, and ukulele!
