Ms. Kim Von Kaenal

I have been teaching since 2002, and I started teaching Language Arts at SJHS at the start of 2021 school year. Working with the students, parents, and educators of the Sweetwater community is a blessing and a joy. Over the years, I have earned a Master's Degree in Gifted Education, and I became National Board Certified in 2009.


During the summer of 2021, my whole family moved from Illinois to Kingston, where we all live on the same property. My son, Dylan, attends Midway Elementary and is very involved in athletics. Dylan and I spend our free time playing sports, hiking, and exploring the great outdoors.
