Some info about your 5th grade ELA teacher!

Hello everyone!

 I have been working in Franklin School for 20 years.  I am very excited to teach 5th grade ELA classes. Teaching is a profession that is very exciting for me.  With each day comes new achievements and challenges the students as well as teachers must face together. It has always been my goal to help the students as much as possible.  It is my hope that with extra time on task, the students will reach their full working potential. I am very lucky to have the support of my husband as well as two young sons. I look forward to a very productive school year!  It is truly a privilege to be working with every student!

Hello 2022-2023 school year students and parents!!!
