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 tenth school year teaching in Wake County.

I am from a very large family.  I have five siblings and five step-siblings.  I have an amazing husband and 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, gardening, going to the beach, museums, and parks.  I am excited to start a new year at Pleasant Grove and work with your child!
