Welcome to second grade at TPS! My name is Kennetha Orsini. Belle (our class pet) and I are so excited for a new year of learning and building relationships! I really enjoy the Thurmont community and love working with your children. This year, we are going to focus on becoming even better readers, writers and problem solvers. I'd like to tell you a little bit about me. I taught first and second grade in Montgomery County, MD. for ten years. After that, I took some time off to be home with my children. My husband Mike and I have three children. Ashley and Nick both live and work in Arlington, VA. Our youngest son, Anthony is a student at Marquette University where he plays lacrosse. I look forward to working with you and your children this year! I'm excited about getting to know you all! Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns.
