My name is Rebecca Kennedy and I am excited to begin another school year at J.H. Sissons! I am returning to work from maternity leave and will be teaching Kindergarten for the first time. I previously taught Grade 1 and I also spent the beginning of last year assisting in Madame Savanah's JK classroom so some of my students may remember me as the rather pregnant lady who helped them with their shoes and zippers before Madame Angèle arrived.

My husband (also an educator) and I are originally from St. John's, Newfoundland and have been living in Yellowknife for three years now. We have a beautiful daughter named Emily and a "good old boy" beagle named Duke. In my spare time (haha) I enjoy reading, cooking, hiking, yoga, and curling. I am a huge appreciator of the arts and enjoy taking in local concerts, theater, and craft sales.

I wish everyone a healthy and happy school year full of hard work, learning, and fun!
