My name is Stephanie Franklin, and I am honored to be selected as the Director of East Village Elementary for the upcoming 2022- 2023 school year. I look forward to working with the dynamic staff, dedicated parents, and involved community members of the EVE school family. Most of all, I am excited about meeting and working with our students and building upon the outstanding academic foundation that has been laid thus far at EVE.
My first priority is to ensure that school is a structured, safe, and supportive environment so that every student can realize the eStem vision. I believe that it takes the support of the entire “village” to develop students who are critical thinkers, problem solvers and collaborative members of a learning community and society. I look forward to our collective efforts to inspire our students to be enthusiastic learners that are willing to take risks.
A little about me. I come to East Village with over 25 years in education. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood Education, a Master’s in Middle Childhood Education, and a Building Level Administrator Certification, all from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. My leadership experience includes serving as Testing Coordinator for Southwest High School, with previous service as Principal at Terry Elementary, Assistant Principal at Fulbright Elementary School, Instructional Technology Specialist for LRSD, and National Board Candidate Support Provider for UALR. Prior to my roles as a school and district administrator, I served as an elementary and middle school classroom teacher for 14 years.
I look forward to meeting all of the students and families of EVE and thank you in advance for your partnership, support, and dedication to your child’s education!
