Mrs. Gerloff


       Getting to know Mrs. Gerloff...

      Hello! My name is Cheryl Gerloff, and I am delighted to have your child in spectra. I am also looking forward to working with you, because by working together, we can make this year successful for your child.
      I have two grown children named Jessica and Jordan.  Jordan is married to Isabel and Jessica is married to Jeremy.  Jessica and Jeremy have 3 children that I am proud to be a grandparent to...Jaelynn, Jackson and Julia!  (Did I mention that my family has a lot of "J" names?!?)  I have recently gotten remarried to a wonderful man named Kevin and he is an architect. 
      In my spare time, I love to scrapbook and make cards, cook and  garden with my husband, go to our cabin and relax, and pin things on my pinterest boards.  My husband tries to refocus my attention away from that because I always find new things for him to make when I am on Pinterest!!
       What else can I tell you about me?  I grew up in Festus, Missouri.  I love to read mysteries and books about time travel.  My favorite authors are Diana Gabaldon and Patricia Cornwell.  I have one dog named Zip that is an Australian Shepherd.  I love to go hiking and have hiked at more than 40 parks in Missouri! My favorite park to hike at in Missouri is in Ste. Genevieve and it is Hawn State Park.  It is beautiful in the  early spring with creeks flowing and flowers blooming!
       As far as my education goes, I have completed my Bachelor's in Education from the University of Missouri at St. Louis. (I started out going to school at SEMO in Cape Girardeau.)  I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education from Lindenwood University. I also have a teaching certificate in Gifted Education.  I have been teaching for 18 years in the Francis Howell school district and I have taught gifted students for 6 years! I have always wanted to be a teacher and often got into trouble using my bedroom closet doors as a chalkboard for my imaginary classroom.  Sigh!
      I am very excited and enthusiastic about this year and am completely dedicated to making you and/or your child's experience at Harvest Ridge Elementary a meaningful one that challenges them in every way. If you have any questions or concerns during the year, I will be more than willing to help!
