Julie Kennedy

1st Grade Teacher

This is my 14th year of teaching and I'm thrilled to be at LVS as a K/1 Educational Specialist. I have previous experience as a 1st grade teacher and a Reading Specialist in both the Blue Valley and Shawnee Mission School Districts. My husband and I live in Lenexa, KS and we have a 9 year old son, and 6 year old daughter.

When brick and mortar schools shut down and became virtual in the spring of 2020, I found a passion for being a virtual teacher; this is my silver lining to Covid19.  Fate intervened and here I am in a virtual school full-time. I am fascinated by the capacity in which we can teach students virtually and how successful of a platform this can be in our evolving technological world.  I'm so thankful to be a part of LVS with the most sophisticated online learning technology available.
