Hello! My name is Mrs. Kenny Carey and I am beginning my 15th year of teaching. I am an Exceptional Education (ECE) Teacher and I currently work with grades 3rd-6th. I work with many different developmental levels of students, but I specialize in teaching students who need extra help in the areas of either math, reading, writing, and/or behavior/social skills. I teach 4 different resource (pull-out) supplental reading groups, 1 resource writing class, and 2 social skills groups. I also co-teach in 1 of Mrs. Peavler's 4th grade reading classes and 1 of her 5th grade reading classes where I do many tasks, including teaching the "Vocabulary Workshop" curriculum. I also co-teach in 1 of Mrs. Bott's 6th grade math classes. I teach a cooking class in our 21st Century After School Program, Cub Club, once or twice a year, as well as do homework help on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. I am a member of our Leader in Me Lighthouse Team, the KYCID Team, and the Writing Team.
I am married to Brian Carey, who is a PTA (Physical Therapy Assistant) for Heartland Rehabilitation Services and works in the clinic that is attached to Southern Kentucky Orthapedics in Glasgow, Ky. We have 3 sons. Hunter, who graduated from Barren County High in 2015, Trapper, who is a senior at Barren County High, and Colt, who is in 6th grade.
I graduated from Hart County High in 1989, Western Kentucky University in 2002 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education P-6, and completed my masters in Exceptional Education Learning and Behavior Disorders in 2003. I attend Immanuel Ministry Church in LeGrande, Ky. In my spare time in the summer and on weekends, I work part-time at the Mammoth Cave Hotel Resturant as a server. I love my students and I will do all I can to help them achieve their goals and become the best person and student they can be, inside and outside of the classroom! Their success, safety, and well being comes FIRST!
Thank you in advance for all you do and for allowing me to love and teach your child!
