Miss Gerdes


​ My name is Miss. Gerdes! I have been teaching for 3 years now. I started teaching 3rd grade in Zion, IL after graduating from Illinois State University in 2017. I am super excited to now be teaching 4th grade at Hillcrest Elementary School in Antioch, IL. 

I live in Kenosha, WI where I get to enjoy Lake Michigan, go on runs and hit the bags at the local boxing gym. I also enjoy spending time with my family, especially my little niece Tate. 

One of my favorite things to do during the summer is volunteer at Holiday Home Camp near Lake Geneva, WI. I love spending time with the kids! Teaching them how to swim, singing silly camp songs, and eating s'mores at the campfire are just a few of my favorite things to do. 

When I'm not teaching or at the lake, I love to travel. My favorite places I have been are London, England and Chiavenna, Italy. I hope to travel to Thailand or New Zealand next!
