WARRIOR WELCOME: Jenni Francis - Third Grade Teacher, Donovan Elementary

For Ms. Francis, a Lebanon graduate, the phrase "Once a Warrior Always a Warrior" rings very true.

Ms. Francis returned to Donovan Elementary this school year as a third grade teacher, a post she held prior to the pandemic.

Seven of her nine years teaching she spent in second and third grades at Donovan. During the pandemic she taught students online as a second grade teacher and last year she started the year as a reading, math, and technology tutor for Middletown City Schools, then ended the school year teaching full day Kindergarten. 

Her two children attend school at Berry. Her son is active in youth sports: he plays football, basketball, and baseball. Her daughter cheers for Lebanon Maroon 5th grade football. For the past two years she helped coach her daughter's competition squad, the Lebanon Warrior Youth Competition Cheer. They won the Nationals Title in Orlando, Florida earlier this year. 

Ms. Francis earned a masters in education from Xavier University and a bachelor's degree in arts and sciences from Eastern Kentucky University.
