Greetings Kennedy Family!
I am so excited and honored to serve as the school Principal of Kennedy Elementary. This is my 4th year serving the Stockton Unified School District, however, it is my 20th year in the field of education.
Some of my experience includes serving as an Assistant Principal for Rio Calaveras Elementary and an area charter school for five years. I have also served as a Curriculum & Instructional Coach, Reading Intervention Teacher, Early Childhood Education Program Coordinator and most importantly, a Classroom Teacher. I am a teacher at heart and truly understand that it is the classroom teacher, along with the family, that makes the difference in the lives of children.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, a Master of Education degree in Curriculum & Instruction, and a Reading Specialist Credential as well. I also hold both Multiple Subject and Single Subject credentials, as well as an Early Childhood Education Site Supervisor permit.
I have been married to my amazing husband for the past 17 years, and we have three beautiful children; ages 15, 10, and 7.
I was born and raised in Stockton having attended Montezuma, Hazelton, Commodore, and Stagg High School. I am passionate about education and helping students, family, teachers, and staff achieve success. I look forward to an amazing school year!!
Sincerely, Mrs. Raychelle J. Fields
Kennedy Elementary Principal
