There will be a familiar face to Marshall County this fall in the halls at Calvert City Elementary School. Kendra Glenn, a former teacher at Sharpe Elementary School, has been named the principal at CCES by the school’s Site-Based Decision Making Council.

Glenn received her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and her Master’s degree in Reading and Writing, both from Murray State University.

She taught at Ledbetter Elementary School in Livingston County for two years, and then moved to Sharpe, where she taught multiple grade levels for 15 years.

In May 2019, Glenn earned a second Master’s degree from Murray State in Education Administration. After completing her administration degree, she worked at Caldwell County Elementary as the assistant principal for the 2019-20 school year.

Glenn’s goal for the 2020-21 school year is growth and high achievement for all students.

“Whatever we need to meet their needs, to help them be successful, is what we will do,” she said.

Other goals include working hand-in-hand with the Calvert community and implementing programs such as reading and job-shadowing programs.

“I am most excited about the opportunity to include the community in our school. I have several ideas that I will be calling upon local businesses to help with. One being job shadowing for our 5th grade students,” Glenn said. “Obviously, with COVID, that may have to wait. I’m also very eager to get a mentoring program started with Reading Buddies. I’m looking forward to working with Crystal Byers at the Family Resource Center to help serve the families of our school.”

Glenn and her husband, Chris, have two children, Brady and Mia.

“My family is very excited to have me back home in Marshall County. Caldwell County was a great opportunity that I’m thankful I had, but there is truly no place like home,” she said.
