Get to know your teacher!


My name is Julia McKenna and this is my sixth year teaching Kindergarten at HCS. My official teaching career started in my hometown of Watertown where I first taught First grade and Kindergarten. I also had the pleasure of teaching Preschool for three years after my undergrad. I love working with children and feel very lucky to be working in such a supportive and collaborative school, such as HCS! My husband and I bought our first home in Canton in 2017 after the birth of our son, Aedan on May 31, 2017. In my spare time I enjoy being outside, especially during the summer when I can go kayaking, hiking, swimming, and attend tag sales & flea markets! I loved sports growing up and played softball, basketball, and swam as a child and adolescent. I also really love traveling, cooking & baking, reading, arts & crafts, movies, and entertaining.
