Dear Parents,

Welcome to another school year!  I am excited to serve as an EIP teacher at LGE. Together, students and I will dive into academics, with a focus on math and reading. We will develop the skills of critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, creativity, and teamwork as we close achievement gaps and accelerate within a grade level. 

I want to take a moment to tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. The USA became my new home in 1992.  I hold a Masters of Science in Education with a focus on Literacy and Reading from Walden University. My math instruction is enhanced though a math endorsement that supports math instruction in K-6 classrooms. As the LGE 2018-19 Teacher of the Year, I had the privilege to develop my leadership skills within our school and within our district.     

My husband serves at FBC McDonough as Minister of Music and Senior Adults. Our three oldest children are either in college or pursuing a career. Our youngest son is a student at LGH. As a musician, I love playing the piano and listening to a variety of music. You will often find me reading professional books, painting landscapes, and keeping in touch with my family.

As we experience this school year together, I welcome your encouragement, support, and participation as students excel as learners.


  With fondest regards,

 Mrs. Kuykendall   (Mrs. K.)
