Hello Parents and Students!
During the 2019-2020 school year and the uncharted territory of distance learning during the Covid-19 quarantine, I am privileged to be guiding senior students through their study of the US Constitution and the US Federal government OR juniors in US History Since 1877, in accordance with Texas education requirements. Thank you for your patience as we all work together in this new format!
During the Covid-19 online educational adventure, my virtual "office hours" will be as follows:
- 8AM - 10AM
- 1PM - 3PM
During those hours I will be online and monitoring my online communication in real time. Please be patient as I may be assisting other students or parents and will respond to you as quickly as possible! During other school hours I may be in virtual meetings with my administration and/or colleagues and planning instruction for our digital future.

- Important News: Students, starting March 30 please check your email and Google Classroom twice daily for academic updates. My primary mode of contact with students will be through Google Classroom. All of my students have, are familiar with, and have been working in Google Classroom throughout the year. I will post resources, links, videos and lessons on there. My email address is CKerske@SpringtownISD.net and that is the fastest way to reach me!
As well as teaching US Government (USG), Dual Credit US Government proctor, and AP Government and Politics (APGOPO - 2nd semester), I also teach one section of US History. Some background: A graduate of University of North Texas with M.Ed, I left the classroom to counsel students at the high school and middle school level for nine years. I missed the daily experience of teaching and working with students in the classroom so when the opportunity to return to Springtown in the Social Studies department opened up, I was so excited! I came to SHS in 2018-2019 most recently from a combined nine years at Azle High School and Azle Junior High, and before that I taught at Boyd High School.
I am a proud graduate of Springtown High School, as are my two adult sons. I am passionate about US Government education as an essential part of being an informed citizen with all the rights and responsibilities included within that priviledge.
