Hi everyone! I'm Ms. Giselle Pokorny. I am fortunate to have worked for the Education and Military communities for 10 years. I am bilingual in English and Spanish. ¡Yo hablo Español! I am so proud to be a military daughter, wife and now mother to an Army soldier. I am pleased to join the outstanding Franklin school community this year.

    Please contact me if you need any information about how I can support your military family in school, bring military speakers, presentations, meetings and parent resources on and off post.
