February Coach of the Month Goes to Coach Frannie

  1. Updates

Our February Coach of the Month is Coach Frannie! Coach Frannie is a first-year AmeriCorps Program Coordinator at Goldrick Elementary in Denver, CO. Coach Frannie works hard every day to bring the values of Playworks to Goldrick Elementary.

This past month, Coach Frannie showed the Playworks Colorado community that working at her school and delivering high program quality is more than just a job to her, it is a passion.

During the month of February, Coach Frannie worked with her school staff to plan and attend a Learn to Ski day at a nearby mountain. Even though Coach Frannie is not an avid skier, she knew that skiing is not an opportunity that many of her students are fortunate enough to have every day and wanted to be a part of giving them that opportunity.

In addition to being a part of this day, Coach Frannie continuously looks for new ways to make her program the strongest. She is thoughtful in her approach to all class game times and makes sure that every student walks away from them with a smile on their face. Her manager is always impressed with her desire to grow and apply feedback.

Coach Frannie has shown through her dedication and professionalism that she is committed to the Playworks Colorado movement. With her willingness to grow, dedication to her students, and hilarious presence we are confident that Coach Frannie will continue to be an amazing teammate for Playworks Colorado and Goldrick Elementary.

Thank you, Coach Frannie, for bringing safe and healthy play to Goldrick every day!
