Hello, I’m Mrs. Kennedy and welcome to 2nd Grade at Riggs Elementary! I look forward to getting to know your family this year and having a productive year with your child!

My Education and Professional Background

In 2010, I earned my Bachelor’s in Elementary and Special Education from the State University of New York at Geneseo. After graduating from SUNY Geneseo I moved to Arizona from New York to teach second grade in Phoenix. In 2012, I received my Masters from Arizona State University in Curriculum and Instruction: Literacy. Since beginning my teaching career I have taught both second and fourth grade.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that all children can learn when given the necessary tools to acquire knowledge. I work hard to challenge students throughout the year and have them realize their full potential as a learner and citizen of their community. I also believe that communication with my classroom parents is key for a successful year. I look forward to communicating with you throughout the year and working together to have a wonderful year.
