ESL / ELL (English Language Learners)
My name is Kathryn Veryser and I am the new ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher here at Kenny. My teaching background is in both elementary education and ESL, I have a Master's of Education from Valparaiso University. I taught kindergarten, first and second grades in Northwest Indiana. Most recently, I was an out of school time program manager. In this role, I fell in love with working with the immigrant and refugee families of Minneapolis and chose to pursue a license in teaching ESL. I earned my License in ESL from Hamline University. I am excited to be working with a fantastic team of teachers, staff, students, and families here at Kenny! When I'm not working with students, I'm busy with my young family, my husband and sons (Kai and Alan). We love to spend time at the parks, swim, play outside, and explore the Twin Cities!
My hours at Kenny are:
Monday:7:30am - 4:00pm
Tuesday: 7:30am - 11:30am
Wednesday: 7:30am - 11:30am
Thursday: 7:30am - 11:30am
