My name is Kerri Kratina. This is my 23rd  year in education.  For the first 17 ½ years of my career, I taught 6th grade, 1st grade, and kindergarten. Eleven of those years were at Fullerton from 1998-2009. Before returning to  Fullerton, I was a Math Coach for 3 ½ years in OPS and an instructor for Primarily Math Program at UNL.  I am so excited to be teaching kindergarten at Fullerton this year.  The classroom is the best place to be.
