Ms. Catherine Kennedy

Hello parents and students! I have enjoyed teaching at Hartwood for the past several years in both 1st grade and 5th grade. GO HORNETS! I grew up near Baltimore with my sister and parents. After high school, I spent my college years at UMW and played lacrosse for the Eagles. During my graduate year, I was a student teacher at Hartwood and was hired the following year for a first grade position. I love the UNC Tar Heels basketball team and enjoy visiting Chapel Hill whenever I get the chance!  I enjoy coaching lacrosse and traveling when I am not teaching. I love my dog, Hunter! If you need to reach me during the school year, my email is
