Hi! Welcome to Glendale-Kenly Elementary Health and Physical Education! This is my first year at Glendale-Kenly Elementary after 11 years at West Clayton Elementary. I am very excited to bring lots of new games and ideas to GKE!
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 (almost--wedding in April 2020) 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!!
At this time, all traditional high school graduations are still planned for May 29. Graduation ceremonies for Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will now take place on May 16th, rather than the original date of May 15th.
The April Johnston County Board of Education meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 7. The virtual meeting will begin at 4:00 p.m and will be conducted via Zoom To Comply With Social Distancing Orders. Members of the public make access the meeting via livestream.
There are no upcoming events to display.
