Staff Bio – Kerry Vanderwekken

August 23rd, 2022

I’m Kerry Vanderwekken (pronounced van-der-wek-en) and I’m thrilled to be the grade 3 teacher at Pembina North this year! This is my second year working in Pembina Hills School Division and I feel blessed to be teaching in such a supportive division. My favorite part of teaching is seeing and celebrating positive growth in my students throughout the year! I am passionate about literacy and believe that being a capable reader is the right of every child. While originally from Edmonton, I moved to Barrhead with my husband (who grew up in the area) last year and I’m now learning to enjoy rural life! When not at school, I enjoy camping and hiking, playing soccer, making music in choirs and on my own, and reading tons of books.
