Welcome to my class! My name is Fran Governale Lantz. I was born and raised here in Patterson. I am a graduate of PHS, UL, and NSU. I originally earned a B.S.in Business Administration with a degree in Finance and returned to night school while teaching to earn my B.A. in Education. From there, I furthered my studies to receive my Masters in Education.
I have been teaching at Hattie Watts Elementary since 1989. The majority of those years were spent teaching 2nd grade, but I also have experience as a "Reading Coach" for a year, an Enrichment teacher for 3 years, and a 4th grade tutor and assistant to the curriculum facilitator for a year. The last few years of my teaching career have been teaching 3rd grade.
