Meet our Teachers
I've been an employee for 33 years and started at Franklin when they added a children’s fun and fitness center which is now the Academy. I'm very grateful to have been able to start the one room childcare 30 years ago and then grow the program along with the Jr. Programming department for the Athletic Club. I love my job and feel blessed to be able to work with our amazing students and families!
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've 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've also taught many enrichments classes over the years, from sign language, to art, to music and drama. Both of her children have attended Franklin Academy, too.
