Kerry Figart

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in English form the University of La Verne in California, and recently received my Teaching Certification from Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, ID. In May of 2017 I completed my Masters of Education. I completed my student teaching with Mrs. Grimes in first grade here at Fruitland. Both of my parents are teachers, and this is a profession that goes back several generations in my family. I have had wonderful professors, teachers and mentors to prepare me for being an educator. I am married with two sons. We have a dog, a cat and now have chickens, so our home is a busy place! I am passionate about learning and I expect to learn as much from your student as they will learn from me.
