Mrs. Deon Kennedy
Hello HH Beam Families! My name is Deon Kennedy. I am excited about being the Assistant Principal for HH Beam Elementary.
I have worked for Gaston County Schools for over 19 ½ years. I was a classroom teacher for 14 ½ years and now in my 6th year as an Assistant Principal. I began my career teaching 5th Grade at Rhyne Elementary School. I have had the opportunity to teach at WC Friday Middle School, Sherwood Elementary and Woodhill Elementary.
In 2011, I received my first Assistant Principal position at York Chester Middle school. From there, I have been an Assistant Principal at Pleasant Ridge Elementary and Woodhill Elementary. Now I have the opportunity to work with the students and staff at HH Beam Elementary.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina and a Master of Educational Leadership degree from Gardner-Webb University.
After all these years, I still appreciate the opportunity to get up each day to help educate and support the growth of our children.
