About Mrs Kenny
I teach the New Entrants at Te Hihi. I started my teaching career in Wimbledon, England and my first class was Year 7/8. My husband and I emigrated to New Zealand and I had a break from teaching whilst raising my two children. Prior to coming to Te Hihi, I taught in Papatoetoe and Howick. I have been at Te Hihi for eleven years as we had moved to our piece of country paradise by then!.
My strengths are literacy and dance. I am a Reading Recovery trained teacher and find the skills and strategies I learned whilst training are invaluable in a Junior classroom. Dance is a passion of mine and although I have no formal dance qualifications, I love it!
Te Hihi is a very different school to any of the others in which I have taught as it is a small, rural school. I enjoy all the opportunities that this brings to my ‘job’ especially the wonderful children here and the amazing support we get from the parents.
