My name is Brad Winter and I’m really excited to be the new principal at Franklin! I’m looking forward to getting to know the Franklin students and families while working closely with the staff to continue doing great things for kids. I hear really positive things about the students, teachers and families and I can’t wait to continue the good work that’s going on!
I wanted to take a minute to share a little bit about myself. I’ve been in elementary education for 18 years and I absolutely love it! I’ve worked my entire career at Hillcrest Elementary in Gillette, Wyoming where I taught first grade, third grade, then technology before taking over the principal role for the last 12 years. Hillcrest is an amazing school that I love and I’m sad to leave my Panther family but I’m really excited to be a part of the Franklin school community and my family is excited about the new opportunities in Boone.
I was born in Mason City and raised in Clear Lake and Muscatine before moving to Florida, then eventually Wyoming…just in case anyone is wondering why someone from Wyoming is interested in moving to the area. A big move is hard but I’m looking forward to returning to Iowa and my family is excited about living in the Midwest.
I’ll be starting at Franklin on July 16 so please feel free to stop by the office and introduce yourselves when you’re out and about so I can start to meet our families and get to know our Franklin students.
Enjoy the summer and I look forward to getting to know all of you soon!
