I am Kerie Kushlan and I am excited to teach Physical Education for my 5th year at Cascade Elementary! This is my 1st year as the Title 1 Teacher and I am looking forward to teaching children to read and love reading! 

I did my student teaching here, and have fallen in love with the town. I have many new activities and equipment for Elementary PE including snowshoes and target activities, and am excited to continue implementing them into my curriculum!

When I'm not teaching your kids, I enjoy golfing, floating the river, paddleboarding, snow activities, reading, Harry Potter marathons, crocheting, and hanging out with my husband, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. I also coach Junior Varsity Girl's Volleyball, assist JV and Varsity Girl's Basketball, and assist with Jr. High Volleyball.
