A Brief Biography of Mrs. Kerpez
This is my 18th year as the School Librarian/Technology teacher at Old Farmers Road School! I have 2 grown adult daughters, Kate and Jessica, who are very close sisters! ❤️ Kate has two pet rats named Carrot and Lucy, and Jessica has a cat named Boba. I love cats! I have a Maine Coon cat named, Princess Fluffy Pants. I know, that is a funny name! I call her "Fluffy," for short. 😄 My daughter, Kate, lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland, and my daugher, Jessica, is a doctor and is doing her residency program in Denver, Colorado. I also love to read and stay active with friends, riding my bicycle and hiking. Do you have any pets? What are some of your favorite books to read? What are your interests? Please share them with me in library!
Love, Mrs. Kerpez
