A Little About Me
Hello, my name is Mrs. McKenna. I taught at Village for 22 years and I have been at Coastal Ridge for one year. Before that I taught in Massachusetts. I have taught preschool to grade 6, as well as college. Second grade is my favorite grade to teach. I love the energy and excitement of the students. I would like to say I have a favorite subject to teach, but I love them all.
I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and Speech Therapy from Emerson College. I also have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood from Boston College. I hold a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.
Outside of school I love to spend time with my family. My daughter just finished her PhD in biochemistry and is expecting her first child in Nov. My son just graduated from Eckerd College with a degree in Marine Science. He is a Marine Mammal Observer. My husband is a hydrogeologist. Science is a big part of our family. We all enjoy boating, skiing and spending time at our second home on Vinalhaven. We have a yellow lab who is now 8 years old and king of the family.
