Welcome back to school!! (2015-2016)



Welcome to Ms. Penny's webpage!!! I am so excited to be teaching third grade again this school year.  I have taught third grade for 17 years, and it is a great grade to teach!! Before teaching third grade at Salem, I taught Special Education (LBD) for 2 years in Casey County at Phelps Elementary. Prior to that I was an instructional assistant at Russell Springs Elementary for a year and a half. I have been truely blessed to always work in great places with good people and terrific kids.  I have a Bachelors of Education degree in Elementary Education from Western Kentucky University and a Fifth Year Degree in Special Education- also from Western Kentucky University.

I am married to Gordon Lester, who works for Lifeline Home Health.  We are blessed to have two wonderful girls, Hailey (who is 16 years old)  and Hannah (who is 13 years old).  Also I have a Jack Russell named Cal after Coach John Calipari from the Kentucky Wildcats. He was named by my husband, who is an avid Kentucky Wildcats fan. When not at school, I love spending time with my family and participating in church activities. I enjoy teaching junior church and wee worship classes at church. I also like helping prepare for Bible School and helping direct the Youth Christmas play.

Please feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions at (270) 866-6197. I will be free to talk to you from 12:15-1:00.  Thanks for all of your support!!
