Dr. Bret Wagner

My name is Dr. Bret Wagner, and I joined the Kennedy family in 2018. My primary role is the music teacher, but I have also enjoyed supporting the campus in many other roles ranging from recess technician to helping students learn to read. I earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Arizona and have spent most of my life since kindergarten just trying to understand how music works. Now, my mission is to pass on what I’ve gathered to Kennedy students so they can take it even further. I am very grateful to have found a home at JFK with its inspiring student body, community, and staff. I hope to see you at our school wide performances, and I am always available by email for all Kennedy families! bret.wagner@rsd.k12.az.us

Mrs. Raquel Hinojos

Hello! My name is Raquel Hinojos. I was born and raised in a small town in Chihuahua, Mexico. I have been married for 26 years, and I am a mother of two. My son and daughter were RSD students, proud Valley View Eagles. I enjoy spending time with family, cooking, hiking, gardening and reading. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education in 2006 from Arizona State University. I have worked for the Roosevelt School District for 15 years. I have experience teaching from kindergarten to 5th grade. I have been the librarian at John F. Kennedy School for the past 8 years. Seeing students get excited about reading is a priceless moment. What I love most about John. F Kennedy is our community. It´s so much more than staff and students - we are a family that truly cares for one another. I enjoy working with the John F. Kennedy Colts staff.
