Meet Your Principal: Carol Franz

by Janice Holst  

School: Cedar View Elementary

Other positions you have held in education: Previously I was a teacher, a school principal, a program coordinator, and a discipline coordinator.

How about jobs outside education? I was a dog groomer and pharmacy tech prior to my career in education.

Family: a husband, two daughters and three grandchildren.

Carol Franz in fourth grade Hobbies/Interests/Little-known talent: Boating the lakes of upper Michigan, doing home improvements and running with friends.

What kind of kid were you at the age of students at this new school? I always loved school and was always very involved in the arts, band, choir, choral, musicals.

The biggest lesson you have learned from students is ... that sometimes the best thing to do is laugh.

If I could go back to school I would go to ... fifth grade because I got to go the "big school" and do band.

If you walked into your new school building to theme music every day, what would the song be? "You Gotta Be" by Des'ree.
