Greetings from Mrs. Hunter
Dear Kennedy Families:
I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and let you know how grateful I am to be part of the Kennedy community as your interim Principal. One of the most important aspects as an educator is building connections with our students, staff, and community. I am excited to immerse myself in elementary learning and providing support and encouragement for our students, staff, and families. Kennedy has a reputation for providing rigorous learning experiences cultivated in warm and welcoming culture and I hope to continue to uphold those expectations. I am here to lead and help meet the needs of all our students. I look forward to a collaborative partnership with our Kennedy community!
Educationally, I am committed to being a life-long learner. I began my academic journey at Albion College where I graduated with a degree in History and Political Science. From there, I attended Wayne State University Law School and earned my Juris Doctor. During my time in law school, I was able to teach two law classes at Pershing High School in Detroit and found my passion. Upon graduation, I attended Saginaw Valley State University to earn my teaching degree. While teaching, I was able to earn my Masters in Educational Leadership from Marygrove College. All of these educational experiences have shown me the doors that open through learning.
Professionally, this year, I began my 17th year as an educator for Livonia Public Schools and eighth year as an Administrator. I taught social studies at Stevenson High School before moving to Administration. Before coming to Kennedy, I was an Assistant Principal at Churchill High School.
Personally, I have been married since 2004. My husband and I have three children, Macie (16), Max (14), and Morgan (13). In addition, we have two dogs, Bigston (Great Dane mix) and MoHenry (yellow Lab). We also recently adopted two six month old kittens, Sugar and Cookie. In our free time, our family is very involved in soccer and basketball, traveling often for sports.
I look forward to building a solid partnership with you to provide the most rigorous and supportive learning environment for our students!
