Mrs. Kenaston started her first year at Slinger High School this year as an English teacher. She teaches English 9 and 10. Even though she transferred from West Middle School in Oak Creek, she always wanted to teach high schoolers. Since September, she says the students have been truly wonderful. When asked about what she liked most about Slinger, she responded with: “I love the school spirit!” she had boasted with pride.

Mrs. Kenaston also loved the how community-oriented Slinger is. However, teaching has been very different here than at Oak Creek. At her old school, the periods were 80 minute workshops, so she had to completely change her curriculum. She thanked her co-workers for being so supportive.

Even though she loves teaching the underclassman, she hopes to teach upperclassman. “I want to bridge learning out of high school. Not all 15 year olds picture the future, I want to give students tools later in life.”

An English teacher encouraged her career during her senior year, so she strives to inspire others.
