Welcome to second grade at Bryan School! My name is Jeni Franks and I have been teaching for 26 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 20 and 18 years old. Coeur d'Alene has been my home for the past 35 years. I feel so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place! My new-found interest is paddle boarding. Louie, my French Bulldog, loves to go with me on my paddle board! This summer we spent a lot of time camping at our favorite spot by the Cd'A River. I love to work in my flower gardens, take my dogs for walks, and spend time with my family. 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!!
