What is your favorite Franklin tradition and why? GFO—Watching the students take an abstract idea and turn it into a tangible, playable hole is amazing. It showcases all of the work they put into the skills of effective communication, collaboration, and critical thinking.
What is your favorite thing about working with these students? The laughter. These kids have excellent sense of humor and love the organic small talk that occurs during social time, in between classes, dining hall, etc.
What is something fun/quirky people should know about you? I recorded with a Grammy award-winning reggae singer.
The most important quality a teacher applying to Franklin Academy should have is… Empathy
If I could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive), I would choose… Joseph Campbell
Something I love about Franklin Academy is… Sense of community
If I could shadow a Franklin alum for the day, what would I hope to learn? How did this person generalize the social and executive functioning skills learned at Franklin in the “real world.”
