Ms. Hennessey


Aaniin, my name is Kelsey Hennessey and I am so excited to be working with your student and family this year as we begin our educational journey in Pre-K! Pre-k is such an important learning time for students as they get their first experience with school and begin to build confidence in their learning and problem solving skills. I am passionate about the work I do with my Pre-k students, knowing that a first positive school experience can set my students up for a love of learning that they will carry with them for the rest of their educational career. I believe in learning through play and exploration and I love creating lessons that connect to the lives and interests of my students to build excitement around learning. I look forward to creating a partnership with your student and family this year where we can learn and grow together. 

I have been teaching Pre-K in St. Paul Public Schools since 2017 and I am so excited to be joining the AIMS community! I graduated from Metropolitan State University in 2016 with a degree in Urban Elementary Education and I received my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2018. 
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, taking walks with my dog Georgia, cooking, and staying active.
