Mr. Kenkel – History and Civics Teacher

TheDailyNighthawk.com: How long have you taught at Northfield?

Kenkel: It is my first year, so about a month

TDN: What subject do you teach?

Kenkel: I teach U.S history and civics class

TDN: What grade levels do you teach?

Kenkel: I teach freshman, juniors, and seniors

TDN: What college did you attend?

Kenkel: The university of Iowa, located in Iowa

TDN: Do you supervise any clubs?

Kenkel: I do not, however I had a student approach me about doing a national history day competition, which I’ve done in the past and I’d be happy to do again, and prepare some great papers, presentations, videos, and projects to compete with

TDN:  did you aspire to be growing up?

Kenkel: I’ve wanted to be a teacher, so I fulfilled my dreams

TDN: How does Northfield compare to other schools you’ve taught at?

Kenkel: Well since it’s a relatively new school there’s a lot of decisions that have yet to be made, it’s seems like there’s some organizational issues that were overcoming, compared to other schools I think the students are all interesting people, and are very good at what they do, I love the level of academic competency

TDN: What has been your best northfield experience?

Kenkel: I liked the back to school night, when the parents came in they were just very easy going, they seemed very interested in the content of the class, and I think that the level of parent engagement is something that I didn’t have at my last school, it’s something I’m excited for to have an extra level of support at home

TDN: Why did you begin teaching?

Kenkel: Because in the summer I worked at a meatpacking plant, and it was the worst job in the entire world, so whenever August rolled around I got to go back to school. Which some people think ‘oh no I have to go back to school’ but for me it was like I’d get to leave the meatpacking plant and go to school, which was the better option, so School was something I wanted to replicate with my career so I became an educator.

TDN: Why’d you choose northfield?

Kenkel: I heard good things, I actually had a coworker in Iowa who worked here for a year, and she had so many positive things to say that made me want to work here.

TDN: Why did you choose the subject you specialize in?

Kenkel: History is like a big story, and I love to tell stories, I love sitting by the campfire telling stories. History is like a good way to tell a story, and it’s a true, and some of the stories are just odd and crazy and wild, and hard to believe.

TDN: Is there anything else you’d like to tell the students of northfield?

Kenkel: Take your work seriously, high school goes by fast so you need to prepare for the next chapter. Tell Mr. Lambert to cut down on the coffee.

Mr. Lambert is NOT laying off the coffee.
