About Mrs. Kerke
My name is Alyssa Kerke. I was born and raised in Glendale Heights, IL. I lived in the same house from age one and a half until the age of 24, moving away to college during this time. When I moved away, at age 24, I went to Quincy, IL, which is right on the border of Illinois and Missouri. I moved to Quincy in 2011 and lived there until 2016 when I moved back to the Chicago suburbs.
When in Quincy, I taught third grade for five years. I loved living in Quincy and enjoyed all the experiences but knew I wanted to move back to the Chicago area to be closer to family.
I have loved teaching at Glen Hill School, where I also attended from grades k - 3rd. The diversity of the school and community brings something special to the classroom. The past four years teaching second grade have been such great experiences but I was ready for a little change. The opportunity presented itself to teach 4th grade and I am so excited for this new change.
I am excited to meet all the new children and have some of my past students in class again this year. I am also excited for what I know will be an event filled, successful school year!
