Hi! Welcome to Glendale-Kenly Elementary Health and Physical Education! This is my 2nd year year at Glendale-Kenly Elementary School and my 19th year teaching PK-5 Health and Physical Education.
I am orginally from New Jersey where I grew up in a magical lake community. I had many sports available to me especially in the summer. This is where I decided that teaching elementary physical education & health was what I really wanted to pursue as a career. After 4 great years at West Virginia University, I went back home to New Jersey where I taught PE and health for 8 years as well as coached swimming and basketball.
I am a mom to 3 sons, 2 daughter-in-laws, and 2 granddaughters. I enjoy sewing sweet dresses and quilts for the girls, but also home accessories with my small sewing business--Creative Custom Sewing. I also try to play as much tennis as I can!
All students will have an opportunity for PE. Cohort 1 students will have PE either on Monday or Tuesday. Cohort 2 students will have PE on Thursday or Friday. Virtual students learning at home, will access PE on the GKE PE Google Classroom of your grade level.

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
