Principal

Welcome Kennedy Colt Community ! I welcome everyone to the 2023-2024 school year! 

It is with great enthusiasm and a deep sense of privilege that I extend warm greetings to each member of our John F. Kennedy school community. My name is Britné Hart and it is my honor to serve as the new principal of John F. Kennedy Academy of Inquiry!

I come to you with a strong commitment to fostering a nurturing and academically thriving environment where every student can reach their full potential. I bring with me 11 years of experience in education, having served in various capacities that have equipped me with a comprehensive understanding of the dynamics of a successful school community.

Our school is not just a place of learning; it is a vibrant and diverse community that values collaboration, respect, and excellence. I am dedicated to building upon the rich traditions and accomplishments of our school, working together with parents, teachers, and students to create an environment that is conducive to both personal and academic growth.

Over the coming weeks and months, I look forward to getting to know each of you, understanding the unique strengths of our school, and identifying areas where we can continue to enhance the educational experience for our students.

I am excited about the journey ahead and the opportunities for collaboration, innovation, and growth that lie ahead for our school community. Together, we can create an environment where every student can thrive, succeed, and become a lifelong learner.

Thank you for your warm welcome, and I am eager to embark on this journey with you.

Mrs. Meredith Hill

My name is Meg Hill, and I am the Assistant Principal here at Kennedy.  I am here to help students, parents, faculty and staff. You can always reach out to me at 602-232-4220 or via email.

In 2000, I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science in Art Education degree at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I spent the next 11 years teaching kindergarten through 8th grade Art in Nebraska and Iowa.

In 2006, I went back to school to earn my Master’s of Science in Educational Leadership because I was interested in how schools work and how we can make changes to better support all learners.

In 2011, my family and I relocated to the Valley. We love the sun, the warmth (maybe not 117 degrees!), and the lack of tornadoes!

My first position in Phoenix was in the Balsz School District as a kindergarten through 8th grade Technology Teacher. I was fortunate to work with a diverse group of students who taught me much about the nature of immigration and homelessness in the Phoenix community. And while I loved my work, I still wanted to pursue a leadership role. This, thankfully, brought me to the Roosevelt Family!

I first taught Art at C.J. Jorgensen, and I loved the neighborhood and community, but was given the opportunity to apply for a new position called the School Leader Intern, which brought me to Kennedy. 

Coming to Kennedy, I found the job I had wanted for years. I get to work with the best families, students, faculty and staff! I love coming to work everyday!

I am here for you. Please let me know how I can help!
