Wenning, who is currently an academic specialist at Pegram Elementary School, will replace Joy Bauman, who is the new Sycamore Middle School assistant principal.
A 1990 graduate of Prairie View Academy in Bastrop, La., Wenning earned her bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education English from Welch College (formerly Free Will Baptist Bible College in Nashville) in 1994.
She received her Special Education endorsement from Tennessee State University in 2001 and Masters in Educational Leadership from Austin Peay State University in 2012.
Wenning has been in the education field for 21 years.
She spent three years at Metro Christian Academy, teaching third grade and middle school English.
Wenning has been with Cheatham County Schools for 17 years. She started in 1998 as a special education teacher at Cheatham County Central High School and then moved to the English Department to teach English I until 2005.
Her family moved to Florence, Ala., and she taught seventh and eighth grade English for one year at Florence Christian Academy.
Wenning returned to Cheatham County in 2007 to begin teaching in the English Department at Sycamore High School before becoming the academic specialist at PES in 2015.
She is married to Steve Wenning, the principal at Cheatham County Central High School. They have two sons, Sean and Avery.
"I am so thankful for the opportunity to continue my journey in education at Kingston Springs Elementary School. I am excited to begin working with the faculty and staff, students and parents, as well as other members of the community to continue to build on the strong foundation and standard of excellence that previous administrators have worked so hard to build,” Wenning said.
She added: “I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and becoming an integral member of the Kingston Springs family and community.”
Interim Director of Schools Stacy Brinkley said Wenning’s vast experience in multiple roles will benefit KSES.
"Her enthusiasm and passion for students and teachers has made her a great choice for Kingston Springs Elementary School. In addition, her successful experiences in the classroom have prepared her for this next role in her career and in this district,” she said.
Wenning will step into her new position on July 1.
