Meet Carol Forrest
Franklin County Schools is my home, where my neighbors and students live. We are a community and I want to give my time, efforts, and talents to the families and students in Franklin County. The county is full of committed educators of excellence. I learn from them and contribute to this community of professionals in collaboration, planning, problem-solving, and enjoying students together. Franklin County Schools has administrators who listen, work with staff, and are present for our learning community.
Why I Teach
I love Mondays! I love Mondays as much as most people love Fridays. I love Mondays because I am a teacher, and I am ready to see my students and move on together to new lessons, new experiences, new creations, and new celebrations in learning. I love Mondays because I prepare for my students, looking at what they have achieved and what they still need. I look at what will inspire and motivate them. I find the one struggling and do a task analysis so that I can address the academic or skill need. I reflect on the excitement in learning, the successes in social interactions, the opportunities that I can make stronger with my support or presence. I hear the laughter, the exclamations, and I see the contentment of being at school with my students and my team and I know that I have been a catalyst to learning. I have spent the weekend thinking about what I can do to help my students grow. So, come on Monday! Let's get to work!
