Ms. Kenner



Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kenner

My name is Emerald “Emmy” Kenner.  I moved to North Carolina from upstate New York, where I grew up.  I went to Skidmore College for my undergraduate degree, and later went to the State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz for my graduate degree in Childhood Education.  This will be my sixth year teaching second grade in Wake County Public Schools.


I am from a very large family.  I have five siblings and five step-siblings.  I was recently married to my amazing husband, and I have two awesome step-daughters.  I love to travel!  So far, my favorite place that I have traveled to is Madrid, Spain, where I taught English for a year.  In my spare time, I love painting, going to the beach, museums, and parks.  I am excited to start a new year at Pleasant Grove and work with your child!
