Ms. Tammy Dennehy - Special Education
Hi students and families! I grew up in Tewksbury, MA and graduated from the University of Massachusetts - Amherst in 1992. After graduation, I worked in early childhood education until I started my own family. I have worked in Special Education for 15 years in 2 different districts. In 2021, I graduated from American International College with a Master of Special Education degree. In August of 2022, I relocated to the Cape from Western Mass with 3 of my 4 adult children, which is when I joined the Monomoy community. I currently live in Orleans with my daughters Mikaela, 24 and Shannon, 18. My son Connor, 21 and my daughter Juliana are at Hampshire College and Hofstra University, respectively. I also have four cats - Rondo, Nim, Charlie, and Quinn. Football is my "favorite season" and I am a HUGE Patriots fan!!!
At Monomoy, I am an 8th grade liaison and teach modified English. I love getting to work with 8th graders and am really looking forward to watching them grow as individual learners all the way to graduation. I am so excited to join Monomoy and be a Shark!
