    About Ms. McKenna

    I am a proud graduate of NPHS and I'm thrilled to be teaching English where I found a love for reading and writing. I graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh with a BA/MST in English Language Arts and Secondary Education 7-12 in December of 2011 and went on to teach ENG101, ENG102, AP English Language & Composition, English 11, and English 10 at Poughkeepsie High School from 2012-2015. Most recently I taught Integrated English 11 & 12 and English 11 Honors at Kingston High School from 2015-2017. I have taught at NPHS since September 2017. I live in Poughkeepsie with my husband Jimmy, 4.5-year-old daughter Colette, and 4 month old son Stellan. Family takes up most of my outside-of-school time and I also love to be outdoors, go for walks and bikerides, and travel to visit friends and family.
