Years at McKinley: 14 years
Greetings!! My name is Richard Kenyon. I am a native San Diegan. I attended UCSD for both my BA Degree in Economics and my teaching credential. I feel so very lucky to be a teacher at such an amazing school that is made up of incredible teachers, families, and most importantly, kids! I live in North Park and wouldn’t live anywhere else for all the money in the world!! I live in a historic 1924 Craftsman bungalow which recently received historical designation. I am a proud member of both the North Park and McKinley communities. I am married to my beautiful wife, Yvonne, who is also a teacher whom I met while we were both attending high school. We have been together for 27 years, of which 14 years we have been married. I am an avid lover of, and believer in, the power of the arts both in my personal and professional life. In all contexts the arts bring out the best in us all. In my personal life, I live and breathe music. I play my Fender Stratocaster guitar and listen to music every minute I can. I am a huge Beatles fan, collecting and listening to anything “Beatles”. In my spare time, besides listening and playing music, I am an avid reader. I also enjoy going to the gym and spending time outside walking. I am also a huge baseball fan. The Padres have been my team since I was taken to my first game with my dad as a young child.
