Mrs. Kerry Boatright
I am from a town right outside of Chicago, Illinois... Go Bears! I earned my bachelor's degree in Biology from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. During my years in college, I completed two internships rehabilitating birds of prey and zookeeping at the Brookfield Zoo. This experience coupled with my love of Science landed me a zookeeping job at the Fort Worth Zoo upon graduating, bringing me 1,000 miles south to Texas. While I was a full-time zookeeper, I met my husband and decided to get my teaching certification. In 2008, I became a teacher but have continued to hold on to my zookeeping career by working part-time at the zoo. In 2015, our daughter was born and completed our little family.
I am very passionate about teaching Science and love seeing young minds light up when they make real world connections and unravel the phenomena that govern our natural world and beyond!
