Mr. Kenneth Wern

My name is Kenneth Wern and I am excited to be your child’s new teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. I have a Bachelor of Science in History from Towson University and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Notre Dame of Maryland. I have worked with exceptional children in various settings throughout my professional career. 

My expectation for our class is to provide a safe and structured environment which cultivates your child’s ability to grow and learn. I look forward to working closely with you in the coming months to develop a strong parent, teacher and student connection that will increase students’ success.
