Teddi Carnesi is primed and ready for a great year. The Huntington High School junior is an energetic, articulate and intelligent young woman, well-informed about happenings around the world and involved in a broad array of activities outside of class.
“I am extremely excited to take Advanced Placement United States History this year,” Ms. Carnesi said. “I have been waiting to take this course since seventh grade! I find the making of America considerably fascinating, especially who influenced it. I am looking forward to working with Mr. [Kenneth] Donovan, as he is my teacher this year for AP USH. I find his outlook on the course and how he teaches the course very interesting. He seems really passionate about what he teaches, which is something that I admire in a teacher.”

Ms. Carnesi is Huntington High School’s junior class president. She also plans to be heavily involved in Natural Helpers and interscholastic athletics.
“I am looking forward to making this year as bright and happy as it can be for my classmates, along with the other officers,” Ms. Carnesi said. “My classmate, Kianna Criscuola and I conduct activities with the Life Skills class monthly. Depending on how the school year starts, we were planning to do monthly activities virtually. If all goes well with high school sports, I will be playing soccer, basketball, and softball. Hopefully, I can get back on the field this fall. I can’t wait to play Blue Devil soccer again.”
The teenager is already giving thought to colleges that interest her. “Right now, my top schools are the United States Military Academy at West Point, Franklin and Marshall, the United States Merchant Marine Academy, Lafayette, Fordham and Wesleyan,” Ms. Carnesi said. “I am looking to participate in ROTC at all non-military academy schools.”
Ms. Carnesi is interested in pursuing an academic major in either political science or international relations. “I want to serve my country and after my service to hopefully get into politics or something government related,” she said.
