About Miss Franks


My name is Melanie Franks. This is my third year teaching at Gilford Elementary School, but my sixth year teaching. I am ecstatic to be in the fourth grade! I graduated from Plymouth State University with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and am a trained Orton-Gillingham instructor. I am a passionate educator who is proud to be apart of a community that takes pride in every one of their students and strives to educate the whole child.

Some activities I enjoy partaking in are skiing, hiking, and going to the beach. I love to spend time with my friends and family, especially barbecuing during the summer nights. 

I have a cat named Pawly and he has extra toes on his paws. I love dogs. This summer, I adopted two puppies Nova and Blaze. Originally, I was only supposed to keep one, but I had a foster failure and ended up keeping both. They are currently attending Puppy Preschool classes to work on their manners! 

     
        



    
I also enjoy spending time with my friends dogs.
  




 I originally grew up in Massachusetts and have lived in New Hampshire for nine years. My family means a lot to me and I try to visit them as much as possible.
