Kerri Fair, Principal

Just as we hope to create lifelong learners in our students, we strive to inspire and challenge our teachers to be wholehearted and passionate about learning. It is my goal as principal to support both students and teachers on this journey. Before coming to The Soulard School, I was a reading specialist in the Hazelwood School District for three years, a classroom teacher for seven years in North Kansas City, and a kindergarten specials teacher in Odessa, MO my first year as an educator. While teaching at The Soulard School, I have been a classroom teacher, literacy coach, instructional specialist, and principal. I have taught grades K through fourth grade and am now in my twenty-third year as an educator, and twelth with The Soulard School. I hold a Master’s degree in Reading Education, a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and am working on my Ed. Specialists Degree in Educational Leadership through Webster University.

My husband, Clayton, and I are also parents of three children; two continue to be Soulard School students, and one is now an alumni.  Colin is in seventh grade. Audrey, our oldest daughter is in fifth grade, while our youngest daughter, Emma, is in third grade. We look forward to continuing to be part of this welcoming community of families and educators.
