Elizabeth Kennedy

Elizabeth Kennedy began her career as an educator at the great James B. Dudley High School in Greensboro and worked there for eight years before joining the John Yowell Academy at the Piedmont School to teach English. Elizabeth has many years experience advising National Honor Society at her previous school and will bring this experience to the JYA program's NHS Chapter. She has vast experience providing various types of learners with a variety of instruction. Specializing in American Literature, she has taught curriculums spanning academic levels. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree from High Point University in English Literature and a minor in Religious Studies before attending the NCTeach program at UNC Greensboro to obtain her teaching license. A proud mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, and cousin, Elizabeth is very family oriented. She and her family have two dogs, Layla an Loki, that are adored beyond measure. A lifelong lover of animals, monster movies (and basically all other movies), true crime television, and memoirs, she is quirky and full of a ton of random trivia. She loves to make people laugh and is shameless in her pursuit to do so.  Elizabeth loves to explore new cities and believes in the power of adventure, curiosity, and kitchen therapy. She also enjoys long walks on the beach at sunset.
