Meet Mrs. Schenk...
This is my 22nd year in the district! I have been in kindergarten for 20 years, and two years in first grade. I spent the first 8 years of my career at #41 school, then 4 years at #57 school and 3 years at #42 school, 4 years at #12 school. This is my third year as a Griffin at World of Inquiry School #58!
I attended St. John Fisher College, where I graduated in 1998 with a major in Psychology, and a minor in Elementary Education. I went on to complete my Master's Degree at Suny Brockport. My thesis topic was "The Role of Parental Involvement in Developing Early Literacy Skills."
I am a mother of 3 boys! My most recent graduate, picture above is headed to Morrisville College to study Horticulture. My junior in high school is an avid guitar player. He plays many local venues as a solo artist, as well has with his bands "The Old Souls" and "JUDAH". My husband also works in the district with the Instructional Technology Department.
I love what I do, and feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to do what I love.
Here's how my love of kindergarten began, in Perth NY, 1981.
My first day of Kindergarten.
