• Dear Parent or Guardian:

    It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction as the appointed Teacher on Special Assignment at Franklin Elementary for the 2018-2019 school year. I have been a 5th & 6th grade teacher for the past 10 years with a specific concentration in special education and literacy development.  I recently completed a year as the curriculum-learning specialist for elementary special education working closely and supporting district teachers.  I am elated to bring my skills to your child's school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

    Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Franklin Elementary by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives, technological skills, fostering a nurturing, safe environment for children, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

    I anticipate a most successful year as we support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Franklin. Please know that my door is always open and I welcome your input. Feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

    I look forward to working with you and your child.

    In partnership,

    Marco Galante
