Dr. Kerr teaches composition classes that emphasize the writing process and American literature classes. Her dissertation dealt with multi-ethnic literatures of the United States. Outside the classroom, she is an avid gardener who is proud of her Garden Club's work in Punxsutawney, home of the famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, the February 2nd weather prognosticator. She is passionate about teaching, her G-men (Gloria's husband and 2 kitty guys), civic service activities in her community, and life! If she were an 'animal,' a perceptive student told her she'd probably be a hummingbird because she's always busy 'humming' with movement, ideas, and energy.
