Meet our Teachers
Since I started working at Franklin Academy Preschool 34 years ago, I have seen our program grow and evolve into the leading childcare program that it is today. As the founder of the one-room childcare program, it has been amazing to see the number of families that we have helped over the years and the large program we have become. At Franklin Academy Preschool, we believe that education is a lifelong journey, and we strive to instill a love of learning in our students from an early age.
I love to see the children’s personalities and knowledge blossom! I started at the Academy eight years ago in the toddler room, but since then have worked in each classroom and am now the Assistant Director. I am the proud mom of three kids, two of which have gone through the Academy.
I have been with Franklin Academy for 13 wonderful years! I've worked in classrooms, and am currently the Office Manager in charge of enrollments and billing. I have also taught many enrichments classes over the years, from sign language, to art, to music and drama. Both of my children have attended Franklin Academy, and have loved their time here.
