M.A. in Latin, French & Classical Civilization from Creighton University
About Mrs. Kennedy:
Literature, Latin and Library - these are a few of the things Mrs. Kennedy likes best! She also likes teaching grammar which she attributes to her years of studying language. Mrs. Kennedy graduated with a triple major from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska-Latin, French and Classical Civilization.
Her classical education flavors the experience our 8th graders have in her Latin class. Mrs. Kennedy's favorite project has the kids create a manuscript, like monks from Medieval Times.
As the school's librarian, Mrs. Kennedy works with every student in the school and loves helping them find books they will like. She's been caught opening a new book, burying her nose between the pages, and breathing in the new book smell!
Mrs. Kennedy and Tim, her husband of thirty years, are parishioners at Our Lady Star of the Sea and their four children graduated from Star. She says she teaches in a Catholic school because her faith is an integral part of her and she likes being able to integrate it into any subject she teaches.
