Mrs. Kerkvliet - 5th Grade

A little bit about Teresa:

I am in my 7th year of teaching here at West Lyon and my does time fly! I grew up a few miles away from West Lyon and attended Inwood Christian K-8 and then came to West Lyon for High School. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Physical Education with a Health Minor from Northwestern in Orange City in 2012 and earned my Masters in Teacher Leadership also through Northwestern in 2018. 

I have taught all 7 years in the 5th grade and continue to teach math and reading to my homeroom kids and writing to all of the 5th graders. Our 5th grade team consists of Chase Vander Feen who teaches Social Studies and Janelle Rentschler who teaches Science. I also have the privilege to coach Junior High and High School Girls and Boys Cross Country. It gets to become a very busy year!

My husband Noah and I have a two very busy little boys named Edison who is three and his little brother Conrad is one.  They are always on the go. Our family resides in Larchwood where we enjoy swimming, biking, running, reading, puzzles, and playing games. 

The two easiest ways to contact me are through email or calling school. 
I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.
Best time to call would be 7:45 - 8:10
