Welcome Our New 1st Grade Teacher Ms. Kerkorian!

SMCES is happy to welcome Ms. Kate Kerkorian as the newest member of our faculty. Ms. Kerkorian originally hails from Phoenix, AZ, and is now happy to call Santa Monica home. Ms. Kerkorian received her B.A. in Journalism, but quickly realized her call to become an elementary teacher. She earned her M.A. in Elementary Education and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Pacific Oaks College. Raised in a Catholic family and attending Catholic schools, Ms. Kerkorian brings her lived faith into the classroom to create a learning environment where all students are given the opportunity and the dignity to learn. When she is not in the classroom, Ms. Kerkorian enjoys yoga and the beach, and she says, “I am excited to be a part of this wonderful and welcoming community!”
