Music that Describes Kathy
Kathy Peneguy was nominated by her colleague, Yvette Spinner.
"Flexible. Caring. Reliable. Ethical. Dedicated. These words describe Ms. Kathy Peneguy," said Spinner. "She has seen students through family struggles, devastating hurricanes, and now, a pandemic. Her professional manner and commitment to teaching the future leaders of our country have made her shine! It's hard to imagine our hallways without her."
Over the years, she has taken on many extra responsibilities, such as the daily car rider duty. She also takes the lead for Family Nights and family events. In her classroom, students feel appreciated, and they are comfortable asking questions because of the community she creates at the beginning of the year.
"Our students have benefitted from her instruction for years, and we will miss her terribly," said Spinner.
