    Dear Parents:
     
    I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Mr. Dudley and I am truly blessed to be assisting with Konnoak Elementary's 2nd & 4th Grade literacy programs. Now just a little about myself:  I was born and raised on Long Island, NY.  I am 44 years old, married 16 years, and have a 7 year old daughter named Crystal.  My family and I have been living in Kernersville since October 2010. My wife was born in the Bronx in New York City and later moved to Long Island. She's currently an R.N.  I enjoy travel, history, gardening, genealogy, politics, camping, boating, and learning about other cultures.  I can read, speak, and write basic German.  We have a Border Collie (Daphne) named after the character in the Scooby Doo series.
