Hunters Point Dance Teacher Does A Little Bit Of Everything For Her Neighborhood School

Bo Walsh
Jeanine "Princess" Kennard of Bret Harte Elementary.

From the series It Takes A School:

Longtime Hunters Point resident Jeanine Kennard is better known by her students as Miss Princess. She’s been working at Bret Harte Elementary School for twenty-five years, starting when her own children were students there. 

"This school and its environment is instilled in my soul, my mind, and my heart."

Miss Princess works 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., in the school’s Before & Afterschool Program, as a special education para professional, and as the school’s dance teacher. For this episode of “It Takes a School” we spend the day with the heart and soul of Bret Harte Elementary.
