Yes the class is hard but he is an amazing teacher. Probably one of the best I've had at Bellarmine. What you learn will stick with you for a long time. Put in the work, and you'll get the grade. Take notes in class. Amazing teacher, and he's really funny and approachable too. Really wish all history teachers were like him.

Had Kerr my junior year, and he was a god. Smart, incredibly funny man, and really cares about your success. He also makes the best unfiltered jokes hahaha. God bless Mr. Kerr (Thanks for the A!)

mr. kerr is the type of teacher that makes bellarmine; bellarmine. what i mean by this is he creates a laid back atmosphere yet he is so knowledgable and his teaching method is designed for his students to succeed. yes, his quizzes take students off guard but all you have to do to get an A in his class is do the assigned reading each night. moreover, he is probably the funniest teacher at bellarmine, and truly cares about his students. if u get him junior year, say a prayer thanking god.

An excellent teacher. If you have him for history, you should be very grateful. He is funny, and teaches in a memorable way. He is very knowledgable about the subject, and keeps students engaged. One of the best teachers. You will have to work hard.

A middle ground in the bell US history curriculum. Harder than Troyan, but less subjective than amo and easier than Facione. Kerr is also a crazy nice guy - you get the feeling that he really cares about what you have to say, and wants you to learn. Not to mention he's crazy funny too. The only difficult parts are the sometimes tricky multiple choice on the tests and the pop quizzes after every reading (thus far, he has only announced 2 quizzes out of 8). Be happy if you placed in his class.

Had Mr. Kerr last year for both PE and History periods one and two respectively (which was awesome cus I would have him two hours in a row on some days)...This guy is my all time favorite teacher ever and everyday last year I looked forward going to his class like you wouldnt believe...the material was very interesting and despite the hard tests, the class was extremely fun and hilarious...it crushes me to know that i could have had him this year again instead of that !@%*(#
