Mrs. Michele Pittington

Message from Mrs. Pittington:

Mrs. Michele Pittington joined the Franklin community in July as the new principal. She replaced Mr. Todd DeTaeye when he moved to a new role at the district central administrative office. Mrs. Pittington has been a long-time “Moliner”. She graduated from Moline High School and Northern Illinois University. After working in Chicago for four years, she returned to the Quad Cities to join the Moline school district as an educational technology specialist. She then earned her Masters of Arts in Teaching degree and became a math teacher at Wilson Middle School for nine years. After she attended Western Illinois University to further her education, she became the principal of Washington Elementary School for four years. She is now our school leader and is extremely happy to be at Franklin! Mrs. Pittington has a supportive family who are also part of the Moline pride. You will see Mrs. Pittington with her husband, Jon and their two children at many Moline sports and social events. Their daughter Megan attends Wilson and their son Jake attends Moline High School.

A message from Mrs. Pittington….

As the new principal, I would like to thank the Franklin staff and families for the warm welcome to Franklin Elementary School. During my first year with the Franklin family, I have observed and have become part of many positive and rewarding aspects of this learning environment. The Franklin teachers and support staff are committed to the academic and social skills education of each and every child. The school climate is safe and nurturing, as well as one of high expectations. Our priority is to use formative assessment to determine which instructional strategies to implement in each classroom, for each student. Our goal is to produce student growth in all learning while teaching students the 21st Century learning skills for college and career readiness. It is evident that the Franklin teachers and families hold the students in a top priority position as we teach and develop the whole child! Thank you for a very successful and memorable first year!
