Beth Kennedy was born on December 15, 1964 in Cincinnati, Ohio. She had two brothers and two sisters. She earned a masters in ceramics at New Mexico State and did her post doctorate work in grades K-12. She learned to do art at a museum at the age of 5 from looking at all the art. She also demanded ceramics in high school.
Her favorite teachers were the kids she worked with; they really inspired her with all the new stuff they do because they make creative things and use their imagination. Many people cannot do that. Also, her first grade teacher was also a favorite teacher, Ken Ferguson. Many people inspire others, but nature and books inspire Beth Kennedy and her 4th Grade teacher, Ms. Nugent.
Many books inspire me because they pump up your imaginations and want you to do stuff like draw a clock with a smiley face that sings.
