GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich Public Schools Preschool Program Coordinator Dolores Kenny has announced her retirement, effective July 1, 2016.
An educator with the Greenwich Public Schools since 1985, Kenny has led the district’s preschool program for the last eight years.
Director of Pupil Personnel Services Mary Forde said, “Dr. Kenny has had a significant impact on our preschool program during her tenure as the Coordinator. She has worked with staff to understand and implement the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards in all Greenwich Preschool classes. She is a tireless advocate for young children with disabilities and always celebrates the potential of each child. Dolores has also brought the early childhood perspective to the curriculum and achievement gap initiatives and has strengthened the partnerships with the private and public preschools in town. Her enthusiasm and commitment will be missed.”
Prior to her role leading the Greenwich preschool program, Kenny was the assistant principal at North Street School for twenty-three years. During this time, she initiated one of the first social-emotional leaning programs in the District – a school-wide positive behavior system, which evolved into the school’s character education program.
Throughout her career, Kenny has been committed to an inclusive model of educating students with special needs. While at North Street School, she introduced co-teaching strategies for special and general education teachers, and developed a collaborative model for the structure of the Pupil Personnel Services team.
