By now, almost everyone has met AMHS’s newest addition to the Special Education Department, Kendell Jennings. Athough Jennings grew up in Shelton, Connecticut, she has  lived in Arlington for over 20 years. Jennings notes, “I moved to Vermont in the middle of my senior year of high school, so I am actually a graduate of AMHS, Class of 1990.”


Jennings assists Special Education Director Dawn Campbell and helps make the department tick. Her tasks include scheduling IEP meetings, processing purchase orders, answering the phones, filing, and creating spreadsheets. She is also the department secretary for all the special education teachers and paraprofessionals. Jennings is also gaining a reputation for decorating the special education department for each holiday. She also cooks for the teachers during parent teacher conferences, and she volunteers at the Scholastic Book Fair at Fisher Elementary School.


In addition to her school responsibilities, Jennings stays busy at home. “We have two children: D.J.  who graduated last year from AMHS and who is currently in college, and Cooper, who is in 4th grade at Fisher Elementary School.  We also have Jasper, our yellow lab.”  Jennings also has multiple interests which include camping, watching her children play sports, reading, and being with friends and family. She notes, “It is important to have interests in your life to keep things fresh and exciting.”   She is also a member of the Arlington Fire Department Ladies’ Auxiliary.


Before coming to AMHS, Jennings worked as an elementary school secretary, and, most recently, as a medical assistant. She took the job at Arlington Memorial because, “I was ready for a change; healthcare is not what it use to be years ago, and I missed working in a  ‘school setting’.  I also wanted the same schedule as Cooper. Most importantly I love working in the secretarial setting. I’m glad to be a part of this team!”

Dawn Campbell, BVSU special education director says, “Kendell is a wonderful addition to the special education department. She has a positive attitude about every task she is asked to do, and the staff and students alike love her. I am thankful that she has decided to join us.”
