Yokechia Kenyatta


2nd Grade
Hello!   I have been a Kindergarten teacher here at Ballenger Creek since 2018, but for the 2020 school year I am trying something new and will be teaching 2nd grade. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am! 
I live in Middletown, MD, but  I am originally from South Carolina. I have lived in Maryland since 2007,  All but of those years have been in Frederick. Before moving to Maryland, I lived in South Korea and Hawaii due to the fact that my husband was active duty in the Army.
I have been married to my husband, Jarrel since 2000 and we have four beautiful children, Jarred and Ja'ren (twin boys, age 20), Jaden (boy,  age 14) and Jamisyn (girl, 11). As you can see there is a "J" theme going on in my house! Jarred is in the Air Force and Ja'ren is attending college in California. Jaden and Jamisyn both attend schools in Frederick County. 
I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching degree from Mount Saint Mary's University and I have a Bachelor of Science degree from South Carolina State University.  
I am so happy to be your 2nd grade teacher and I look forward to meeting you!
