Mrs. Kerry White
Welcome to Northwood! I've worked in three Texas public elementary schools working with students in grades K-5. The best school is Northwood! It’s got a terrific atmosphere with a team approach (students, parents, teachers) for people caring about and helping people, younger and older.
I am Mrs. White and I like teaching a variety of students and subjects! I am fond of teaching students using hands-on and small group approaches to foster learning. I facilitate students in learning how to use technology as accommodation tools for current and future independence. I foster high expectations for my students and celebrate their small and large successes with them. Most parents appreciate frequent contact I offer about their child's progress. Together, we are guiding children to figure out strategies that work best for them to positively contribute to their own learning and in becoming community participants, now and in the future.
I was born and raised in San Antonio. I attended Dellview Elementary and Eisenhower Middle School. I am a Churchill graduate. I am a proud product of North East school district and currently live in the MacArthur High School attendance area. I've taught elementary students for forty years! At Northwood, I am a Co-teacher, also known as a Special Education teacher.
I am so fortunate to be able to "keep up" with several former students who are now grown; some with their own children. From time to time, I get to visit with these grown-up students as visitors, as parents with their own children who attend Northwood, or as participants at the fantastic springtime Northwood carnival! I love hearing about their successes after their Northwood years!
This 2017-18 school year I'm teaching and learning primarily with fourth graders. It's going to be a great year!
