Some parents and students may already know Ryan Kennedy. The new asst. principal has been an English Language Arts teacher at Pennwood for five years.

Kennedy replaces Vincent DePaola, who went on to serve as Fallsington Elementary School’s Principal.

Superintendent Dr. William Gretzula called Kennedy an “exemplary teacher.”

“Included in the feedback we received from the interview team was the sentiment that Mr.
Kennedy was the perfect candidate for the job,” said Gretzula. “He has respect for – and from – all students and staff. A leader at Pennwood and in the School District as a whole, Mr. Kennedy has served on multiple committees, including the School Wide Positive Behavior Supports team for Pennwood.”

Before joining the District in 2014, Kennedy taught at the Wyoming Area School District in Luzerne and Wyoming Counties in Pennsylvania.
