Welcome to Franklin!
My name is Janet Sandstrom and I am the principal here at Franklin School.
I have been an educator in North Bergen for 33 years now. I began my career as a 7th and 8th grade English teacher at Lincoln School. After 11 years, I decided that I could better serve the students as District Supervisor of ELA. Although I enjoyed that job immensely, I began to miss the one to one interaction with the students. After 12 years as supervisor, I embarked on another journey, principal. This is a job I find completely fulfilling! I enjoy reconnecting with students in a way I never knew could be so satisfying.
As you probably can see, I have a great deal of experience and the years behind it. Please know that my number one priority is your child's educational journey. I try to create an environment that is fun for your child, with an emphasis on the importance of education. Our school is a safe place and a community for your child to grow and be successful in his/her future endeavors.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email me at anytime. I maintain an open door policy for everyone. We here at Franklin are family!
