Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. My name is Erika Kennedy and this is my sixteenth year at AO Elementary School. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Literacy Education. I am originally from New York but North Carolina is my home. I am very excited to be teaching your child in fifth grade this year. This year we will experience lots of learning while having a lot of fun. I look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces.
