Mrs. Kennita Hairston
Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year!
My name is Mrs. Kennita Hairston, and I will serve as the School Library/Media Specialist and co-adviser of the Yearbook Club. I have over twenty years of classroom and literacy teaching experience, and am anxious to serve the students and community in my new role at Jackson STEM Middle School.
My ultimate goal is to help students build essential literacy skills (reading, writing, and spelling) for career and college readiness. To help build these essential literacy skills, I encourage each student (and family member) to enjoy reading for leisure just a few minutes every day. Research shows that children and adults who independently read books, or are read aloud to for just 15-30 minutes every day can advance one grade level in a school year. Listening to audio books in the car is one way to sneak in a few extra minutes of reading time for the entire family!
Stay tuned for exciting reading promotions and activities that will take place this school year!
If you any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail or call me.
