Hi! Welcome to Glendale-Kenly Elementary Health and Physical Education! This is my 4th year at Glendale-Kenly Elementary School and my 21st year teaching PK-5 Health and Physical Education.
I am originally from New Jersey where I grew up in a wonderful 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.
We moved down to Clayton 20 years ago and love it! I am a mom to 3 sons, 2 daughters-in-laws, and 2 granddaughters who all in NC. 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 classes will have PE once a week (Monday-Thursday). On Friday, the Enhancement teachers rotate. There will be weeks where you will have PE twice a week!

2nd Grade: 9:15-10:00 Mondays classes: Winstead, Perkins, Davis, Ward, Wall, Lane

At the November Regular Session Board of Education meeting, the Board voted unanimously to improve safety and security in Johnston County Public Schools by implementing state-of-the-art security systems in each of the district’s schools.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
