Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Ms. Kennedy's class! I am so happy and excited to welcome all of you into my classroom this year. This is my 11th year teaching and my 10th year at Yates Mill. I have spent my entire career in education and cannot wait to begin teaching again.
I am originally from Dublin, Ireland but have called North Carolina home for over 20 years now. I am a proud graduate of UNC Greensboro where I attained my Bachelor's degree in Education. This is my third year in second grade having taught kindergarten for eight years. I have a passion for instilling the love of reading in my students and watching them reach their fullest potential.
When I am not in the classroom, I can be found spending time with my husband, Gabriel, and my two children, Lorcan and Bevin, who both attend NC State. I also love to spend my time reading a good book, knitting, and gardening. On the weekends, I am kept busy attending yoga classes and walking my two little Yorkies, Bisto and Oxo.
I look forward to a wonderful year filled with fun learning experiences!
