“I am very excited about starting with a small and established district like Hanover Community School Corporation. I look forward to committing myself to supporting the students and families at Jane Ball Elementary in every way I can. I know I will learn a lot from veteran educators and am honored to have the opportunity to learn and grow in this positive and supportive environment,” said Mr. Kennedy.
In his spare time Mr. Kennedy appreciates spending time with his family and collecting bugs and building Legos with his boys. He also enjoys playing the piano and guitar, learning about gardening and bike riding. Mr. Kennedy can’t pass up a good garage sale and enjoys collecting various oddities.
