A Little About Myself

                My name is Mary Kennedy and I am originally from Corning, New York.  I moved down to Georgia to go to Berry College where I got my Bachelors Degree in Art History.  I eventually found my way into teaching and I have just finished my fifth year.  I am going to get married in November 2012 to my wonderful fiancee, Matt.  He is a teacher too but he teaches math to high school students.  We have one cat Josephine, who I named after Josephine Bonaparte.  I enjoy spending my free time reading Young Adult novels and going to Braves Games.
