Welcome to second grade at Bryan School! My name is Jeni Franks and I have been teaching for 22 years. I've taught kindergarten, first, and second grade. Teaching second graders is my passion! I received my B. S. Degree from the University of Idaho with an Elementary Teaching Certificate in grades K-8.
Bryan School has a special place in my heart. As a child, I attended Bryan School, which is where I decided that I knew I wanted to become a teacher when I grew up. Believe it or not, my husband also attended Bryan School when he was a kid. I am the proud mother of two amazing boys who are 18 and 16 years old. Coeur d'Alene has been my home for the past 32 years. I feel so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place! My family's new found interest is kayaking. This summer we spent many hours on adventures with our kayaks. I love to take my two Boxer dogs for walks, work in my flower gardens, and watch my boys play football. I am a very proud auntie to my identical twin nephews! My very favorite place to visit is the ocean!! I believe in teaching every child to be a life-long learner!
Bryan School is such a fabulous place to be! Go Bryan Bears!!
