Whitney Penn ~ 4th

Hello! My name is Whitney Penn and I have the pleasure of teaching the 4th graders at Kaufman Christian School. I was born and raised in Kaufman, and currently live here with my husband and two boys. My husband and I were married in 2009, started growing our family in 2013, and have been loving every second since then.

Before pursuing the world of education, I attended Dallas Baptist University. While at DBU I received my BA in Sociology and grew in my love for Christ. After graduating, I decided to become a certified EC-4 teacher. The first 4 years of my teaching experience was spent with precious Head Start children. After that, I decided to stay home with our sons Knox and Nash.

Once again, I’ve been called to teach and I am thrilled to be doing it here at Kaufman Christian School. I expect big things in both our students’ future and mine. Thank you for sharing your children with me.

If you have any questions, please email me here
