Ms. Karen Kenney
Hello! Welcome to First Grade! My name is Karen Kenney-Lassiter (aka Ms. Kenney). This is my 5th year in First Grade after many years teaching Kindergarten. How exciting it was to see the progression as students move from Kdg. to First grade! When not at school, I enjoy reading, hanging out with my family, and fostering dogs with a local rescue. I am looking forward to another great year and will do my best to make sure your child has a great year in first grade!
