Assuring learning excellence and readiness for a changing world


Principal Welcome

Thank you for visiting our site. I am proud to be a part of the Franklin Elementary School family. Franklin Elementary School is a strong and supportive school community where families are welcomed and students thrive. Our dynamic and experienced teachers and support staff have a proven track record of success and strive to partner with families to help students continue to grow.

I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education! I am excited and eager to use my skills as an educational leader to Franklin Elementary School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success. Along with our amazing staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by Franklin Elementary by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. We will focus on character education initiatives, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the students' achievement.

All of us at Franklin Elementary are proud to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As you Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors - teachers, students, and parents - are welcome and excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Franklin Elementary meet their goals and have a successful school year!
