We chose Franklin for our family based on the great public schools. As a neuroscientist, a university lecturer, and a scholar of teaching and learning, I will bring a unique perspective to the Franklin School Committee, with the goal of making our schools truly excellent. My proven, evidenced-based approach to leadership focuses on listening to all parties, synthesizing input, and arriving at mutually agreeable solutions.

SETTING THE STAGE FOR LEARNING
The core idea of Monica's teaching philosophy is to create the best possible learning environment for her students. She has learned a lot as she's worked towards this goal in her classrooms, trying out a variety of ideas, engaging in evidenced-based practices, participating in professional development in areas like diversity and inclusion, and through her experiences on committees including campus life and academic technology. As she works toward this goal every day in her classroom, she will work toward this goal every day for the Franklin students.
