Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Edward Kerr
This is my 20th year teaching at Cumberland in either 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. I’ve also worked for the Palo Alto School District teaching Math Enrichment, the Sunnyvale School District teaching reading fluency and reading comprehension, and the De Anza College Cupertino Summer Program teaching accelerated writing and math. This will be my second year leading the Math Olympiad Program. I graduated from San Jose State University with a degree in Liberal Studies, a minor in English, and continued at SJSU for my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. A few years ago I earned my Master’s Degree in School Administration from Santa Clara University. My wife and I have three children, Emma, Owen, and Liam.
My teaching strategy is very simple. I set high standards - but try to make things easy for your child. I use fun, interactive teaching models, and inspire students to always do their best.
