Our Principal

Meet the Principal

Roy WoodDear Franklin Elementary STEAM Magnet School Families,

My name is Melissa Roy-Wood and I am so excited to introduce myself as the principal at Franklin Elementary STEAM Magnet School. It is an honor to be selected to join the Franklin Elementary team, which is known for building innovators, scholars and leaders.

I have worked as an educator in the San Diego Unified School District since 2004. I was most recently a Vice Principal at Central, Dingeman and Miramar Ranch Elementary Schools and have served as the Program Manager in the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Department. I taught at La Jolla Elementary and Sequoia Elementary in Clairemont.

I consider my most important job is to be an advocate for children. I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests.

I will celebrate their successes small and large. I will encourage them every day and let them know that they are valued and have a special place in our school community.

Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but I also look forward to the work that we will do together. As the old African Proverb states, "It takes a village to raise a child," I am excited to see your children through your eyes. I cannot wait to share with you the great things they do throughout their days here at Franklin. And of course, I will be here to work with you should they need any help navigating any aspect of the school day.

I wholeheartedly believe that the school community must work together as an extended family environment to insure success for all our students. I believe that it is everyone's responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for him or her to become successful academically, socially, and emotionally.

I believe that all students benefit having access to a quality educational experience. Please feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns. Our goal is to partner with you to make your child's elementary school years a very memorable and a positive experience.

Educationally yours,

Melissa Roy-Wood
