Millbrook recently hired several new English teachers. One of the newest is Ms. Kennerly. “Everyone is really nice and helpful,” said Kennerly. She believes Millbrook has been a very welcoming place for her. “I really like my students and the grades that I am teaching.” Ms. Kennerly teaches 11th and 12th grade English.
“This is not my first year teaching. This is my sixteenth. Millbrook is an overall fun place to work. The staff and the students make each day interesting,” she said. Millbrook gives Kennerly good vibes and she thinks it’s an overall good place to work even after having teaching other places. Along with being a teacher, Kennerly is also a published author. She wrote a young adult novel called, The Kennedy Chronicles: Losing Rylie. It’s sold on Amazon, Books a Million online, Barnes and Noble online, and other online book stores.
She started her teaching career in Warren County, but moved to Los Angeles a year later where she taught in a very poor, gang infested community for five years. She then moved back to Virginia where she taught in Loudoun County for 10 years. Ms. Kennerly took a 3 year break from teaching, which is when her book was published. She knew she wanted to teach when she was a senior in high school. She had an English teacher named Mr. Brown, who really made an impact on her life. She knew then that she wanted to have that type of influence on students as well.
