From Schor Principal Richard Hueston:
For the past twenty-plus years, Cathyann Franko has opened her door, her mind and her heart to more students than one could mention. Whenever you walked past her classroom, you saw her involved with students, and after a few minutes of observation, you could see that each and every student was treated as if the fate of the world depended on his or her success. No matter how insignificant the questions were, Mrs. Franko always found a way to help students learn and be secure and happy in their accomplishments. She took on new initiatives, new curriculum, new staff, student teachers and new administrators, teaching them that building relationships was the key to helping a student succeed.
Mrs. Franko taught teachers how to teach and what to expect from one another. She was truly the “The Wind Beneath Our Wings" at Schor Middle School. We wish her much happiness in her retirement and thank her for her years of service to the students of the Piscataway School District.
