Biography

Mrs. Kersey has been working in the education field for over 20 years. She began her teaching career at St. Aidan School in Williston Park from 1978 to 1991. She took a hiatus from teaching when her husband was transferred to Marseille, France where they resided for 2 years. She returned to New York with a new family, as her son was born while she was in France. They were home briefly and once again moved, this time to Copenhagen, Denmark. While in Copenhagen, Mrs. Kersey was the President of the Ladies International Network Copenhagen. She also worked as the Community Liaison Officer (CLO) for the American Embassy in Copenhagen. In this role she worked closely with the three international schools in the area to insure that the curriculum needs of embassy students were met. She was awarded the M Juanita Guess Award by the United States Department of State for her achievements as CLO. She left this position to accept a position as a Middle Years Mathematics teacher at the Copenhagen International School. In 2002, the family moved to Simsbury, CT. From 2002 – 2006, Mrs. Kersey worked as a long term substitute teacher in grades 4, 5, 6 at all five of the elementary schools in Simsbury.  Ready to return to a full-time career, Mrs. Kersey chose to return to the Catholic educational system as she believes in a values based educational system. From 2006-2012, Mrs. Kersey taught grades 6-8 in St. Peter/St. Francis School in Torrington, CT. In 2012, the family once again relocated, returning to New York. Mrs. Kersey joined the St. Christopher faculty in 2013 as a long term substitute and remained on staff as an AIS tutor.  This will be her second year as a full-time teacher at St. Christopher.
