Mrs. Lisa Ferrare

I am the proud principal of Franklin School and have been fortunate to work in education for 15 years as a teacher and administrator at both the elementary and middle school levels.  I have a variety of experience working in New York, Virginia and New Jersey, and I was a part of the Springfield Public Schools as well as the Millburn Public Schools before joining the Roxbury School District in 2017.   Additionally, I have a wonderful and supportive husband, and I am the proud mother of three boys and one pup.

I believe a safe, supportive, encouraging school environment is paramount to the success of students and teachers, and the creation of this environment is built upon a climate of mutual respect among all constituents.  I work collaboratively with students, staff and parents to create an inclusive educational environment where every student can reach his or her individual potential.  I strive to maintain clear, open lines of communication that allow parents and teachers to work together to empower students to succeed.  

One of my favorite quotes comes from Maya Angelou.

People will forget what you said.  People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
