She has been a wonderful addition to our English department.”
“She has come up with some great ideas to engage her students and present them with real-world connections. It’s hard to describe all that she does in and out of her classroom, but she is my teacher inspiration.”
“The opportunities she is creating in the learning environment are engaging the students who are not always the easiest to get involved. From rewriting their own stories to creating a dream gingerbread house, the students are truly diving into learning and taking ownership of their work. Working with Mrs. Franks makes me a better teacher.”
“Mrs. Franks recently went the extra mile with her students on a reading project that involved getting books donated to her class as well as bringing in other teachers to participate in her classroom discussion. She made the unit really enjoyable for her students!”
