My name is Johna Hancock. This will be my 16th year at Francis Elementary. I have a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education, and Masters degrees in elementary school counseling as well as elementary administration. I previously taught kindergarten for nine years, third grade for three years and was the guidance counselor at Francis for two years. This will be my second year as the Francis principal.
Francis Elementary is such an amazing place. It truly is the best kept secret in Pontotoc county! Our teachers and staff are the best around and we're very excited to get to know your child this coming year.
Last year we adopted new core values for our staff and students. These are the things we will be working to develop in and with your child each day.
At Francis Elementary We Value:
1) Relationships: We value relationships at home, at school and at play
2) Empowerment: We will provide empowerment to the whole child
3) Excellence: We expect excellence both socially and academically
Our teachers and staff will be sharing lessons and activities with your child to introduce these core values. If you have questions about our core values please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
