Mr. Kernan Willis
Hello! I’m Kernan Willis, one of Peninsula’s Learning Center teachers. I will support you through
the special education process and provide your child with the supports they need to be
successful-be it consulting with their general education teacher, providing small group
instruction or 1:1 individualized support. I have experience teaching both general education and
special education and have worked with a wide range of learners-super stars every one! Things
I enjoy-reading, hiking, being by water, animals and taking time to enjoy the little things. Look
forward to working with you and your family!
Favorite school memory as a student:
My 2nd-grade teacher was my favorite teacher! We had fruit flies that we cultivated and took care of at our desks and had a science journal where we recorded our observations. I loved watching them closely and writing down everything I saw. I tried to name all of them but there were just too many!
My “why” for being in public education:
Because everyone deserves a safe, fun learning environment and kids are the best!
What I do to unwind and recharge:
Read, do a puzzle, snuggle Camelot my dog, hang with my friends, take deep breaths, meditate, tend my plants, exercise.
