Sarah Kennedy's Profile Picture

Educator Bio

To start- I didn't grow up in the south but I got here as fast as I could!! In 1998, I moved from Little Valley, NY to North Carolina to attend college at UNC Pembroke. I lived in Raleigh for 13 years and moved to WNC with my husband in August of 2016. We have a daughter and a dog named Jerry! In our free time we love to go hiking, shopping or just hanging out at home. I have taught special education for over 10 years and love what I do. I am so grateful to call Brevard home and to work in such an awesome school!
