FRANCIE McGRATH (Teacher)
Francie McGrath worked with children for the past 10 years in her home-operated childcare facility. She has helped raise and care for children of various ages. She enjoyed it so much that she returned to college online to receive a Bachelor’s degree in Community and Humanities with a concentration in Early Childhood Studies. Mrs. McGrath has been a part of PVP for years — two of her own children and two of her childcare kids attended the school. She has also enjoyed serving on the board and substitute teaching. She especially loves the parent involvement, community support, and partnerships the teachers and parents develop in this learning environment.
