Mrs. Kenya Bond
This is my 10th year teaching; previously I taught 7th grade ELA at American Way Middle School, English II and English III at Melrose High School and English I at Craigmont High school.
I was born and raised in Memphis. I attended Christian Brothers University where I majored in English Education. In addition to my Bachelor's Degree, I have my Masters in Art and Education degree.
In my free time, I love spending time with my wonderful family. Whenever I have a few moments to myself, I am either reading, researching or writing. Ever so often, I will binge on a movie or three.
If asked, I’d describe my class as an excuse-free zone. I believe that you are the future's best weapon; therefore, it is my job to hold you accountable, help you see your potential, and help you to think critically, in addition to assisting you as you become a better reader, writer and learner.
You may be asking why I call my classes "Bond University"; well, it is simple. As your teacher, it is my duty to not only prepare for the test, but to prepare you for the world and how to be successful in it.
So get ready to push yourself harder than you ever have before. Please note that excuses are not welcomed nor allowed.
I look forward to working with you this school year.
