Mrs. Clare Kennedy

My name is Clare Kennedy. I was born and raised in Ireland, and this is where my teaching career started in 1999.  I was educated at Trinity College Dublin, where I earned my Bachelor’s in Education K-6.  Since then, I have taught in schools in Ireland and South Florida, where I moved to after meeting my husband. We lived in Broward County for 13 years before my family relocated to the Melbourne area, summer 2020. I have two daughters, Saoirse & Emmy, who keep me very busy. As a family we enjoy being outdoors, exploring parks and beaches and of course travelling back to Ireland to see family when we can.

My teaching philosophy has always been child-centered and hands on, with emphasis on discovery learning and the use of manipulatives. I value the role parents have in their children’s education and I have always worked in partnership with families to guide them in the best practices so that they can help their children be successful. I look forward to a fun and exciting year.
