In 2010, I came to Augusta High School as the Principal. I have been here for 8 years. This is my 31st year in education!
I started teaching and coaching in 1987 at the Midway-Denton School District in Denton, KS. I then taught at Robinson Middle School in Hiawatha, KS. After getting my master’s degree, I became a School Counselor at Everest Middle School in Everest, KS. I then moved on to Riverton Schools in Riverton, KS as a School Counselor. After completing my administration certification, I became the Assistant Principal and then the Principal at Pittsburg High School.
I am married to Tom Zerr, a teacher at Augusta Middle School and we have been married since 1987. We have three wonderful children! Mariah is a senior at Pittsburg State University and will graduate in May 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Riley is a sophomore at Pittsburg State University with a major in Exercise Science and she is on the PSU Track Team. Cade is a junior at Augusta High School. Both my daughters have graduated from AHS and I expect Cade will do the same.
I enjoy traveling with my family, exercising, reading, and watching the PSU Gorillas and KU Jayhawks!
