Welcome to first grade!
My name is Kay Kennedy and I am looking forward to a great year as we engage in lots of fun learning. I have been teaching for over twenty years in St. Paul. This is my seventh year teaching at Mississippi Creative Arts. For five years of my teaching career, I was a Reading Recovery Teacher. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to become certified in Reading Recovery and dig deeper into the reading process. I have a Master’s Degree in Gifted and Talented Education and believe gifted and talented strategies are good for all students.
Reading is my passion and something I love to do as a way to relax. My husband and I enjoy playing board and card games, spending time at our cabin and dining out with our family. We also have a small dog, Hercules, who loves to cuddle.
First Grade is a time of learning, sharing, and making good friends. This year, we will be making memories together and learning from each other every day. When parents/guardians, teachers, and students work together, students can reach their goals and their first grade year will be a positive and productive experience. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you as we embark on this wonderful journey.
