Congratulations to our 2018 - 2019 Teacher of the Year
Mrs. Theresa Kennedy
Mrs. Kennedy is currently a Pre-K teacher. She has taught in the Hillside district for 10 years. She began as a Pre-K paraprofessional, and then spent 8 years teaching Pre-K.
Mrs. Kennedy graduated from William Paterson University with a B.A. in History and holds a teaching certification in Elementary Education. Mrs. Kennedy went on to complete her master’s at Walden University in Literacy and Reading, graduating with a 4.0 GPA.
Mrs. Kennedy went into education because she wanted an opportunity to profoundly impact the lives of children. Her favorite part of teaching is seeing the students grow and succeed.
She would like to thank Ms. Lowe, Mrs. Q, Mrs. Palmer-Gillard, and her colleagues for giving her the opportunity to achieve this award.
