About Coach Kennady
As a proud Parkway Alumnus, I am so excited to be back in these halls. I graduated from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge majoring in Mathematics Education in May. As a first year teacher, I am sure I will learn as much as the students, and I am looking forward to teaching at the best high school in Bossier Parish! Having just recently been in the student chair, I totally understand the fears that some students have regarding mathematics, and my goal is to dispel these fears and make mathematics fun. Mathematics job opportunities are growing with the advancement of technology, and I want to ensure that Parkway students are prepared for these jobs. I will be using technology in my classroom and for some homework activities. I would like to use the majority of my classroom time for practice—not lecture. Students will be expected to complete some activities out of the classroom to prepare for practice. I want to encourage the students to use their thinking skills—not do the thinking for them.
This year, I will be teaching Fundamentals of Algebra and Algebra I in the classroom. I will be coaching Boys Soccer, as well as, Freshman Football and Varsity Football as needed. I will also assist with Track and Field.
Please contact me for any concerns that arise.
