Letter to Buder Elementary Families from Principal Dr. LaKisha Franks

Hello Buder Bobcat Family,

I am elated to join the Buder Family. I have heard so many amazing things about the Buder community. I look forward to connecting and partnering together to ensure success for all students. 

I have 10 years of classroom experience, 2 years as an instructional coach and 3 years as an Assistant Principal. I am pleased to be starting year 16, as the Principal of Buder Elementary.  I am a continuous learner who strives to make a difference in the lives of others.

At Buder, all kids are our kids. We celebrate and embrace diversity. I will continue to ensure equitable practices are in place to meet the needs of all scholars. 

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, karaoke, roller skating and spending quality time with the ones I love. I am a servant leader at heart and I will always do what is best for our scholars. Let’s have an amazing year full of learning, connecting, building, collaboration and fun. Please follow us on social media to stay connected with school updates. 

If you ever have a concern or question, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Dr. LaKisha Franks and family
