Our Principal

Principal Jennifer Fanning

Jennifer Fanning

Welcome, my name is Jennifer Fanning and I am honored to be your principal of Kennedy Elementary School.  This is my 25th year in education, and third year as principal of Kennedy. I have taught in the School District of Janesville for 17 years.  I taught at Jefferson as a 4th grade teacher, Monroe and Adams as a Talented and Gifted Resource Teacher, Jefferson as a 3rd grade teacher, and many summers at various elementary schools, Edison Middle School, JSOL, and as Head Summer School Teacher right here at Kennedy.  For 5 years between teaching and returning to Kennedy, I was principal at McLenegan Elementary School and then at Cunningham Intermediate School in Beloit.  

It is my goal to inspire students as I am a lifelong learner.  I earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from UW Stevens Point, a Master of Arts in Teaching from Aurora University, my Principal licensure and Curriculum and Instruction licensure from Aurora University, and I’m currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis from UW Madison.  When I am away from school and the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and shopping. I look forward to partnering with our families to encourage all students to thrive at school, at home, and in their community.
