|Franklin Parish High School welcomes new faculty members|
Progress marches on and changes are afoot at Franklin Parish High School. Two new staff members have found a home at FPHS and are ready to take on the challenge of preparing students to fulfill their academic goals.
Ruth Bonner-Thompson, native of Fort Necessity, will serve as curriculum coordinator at FPHS. She will bring over 21 years of teaching experience and knowledge to the students and faculty.
"My primary administrative role is to support teachers in preparing students for a successful life and career," said Thompson. "In order to impact students in a positive manner, it is very important for students to feel that you really care about them and that you are there to support them."
For the past seven years, Thompson has been employed by Louisiana Technical College and Louisiana Delta Community College in Monroe. From 1987-2001, she was a classroom teacher and technology coordinator for the Franklin Parish School System.
"It feels good to be back home," said Thompson. "I have greatly enjoyed working with faculty and students from across the state, I have had limited contact with teachers and students in this community. I'm looking forward to playing a more supportive role in my local community so that along with the faculty and other administrators, I can make a real difference."
Thompson received her bachelor of science degree in business education from the University of Louisiana at Monroe, formerly Northeast Louisiana University. She received her master of education in secondary education from NLU and her doctor of education from Louisiana Tech University in Ruston. While at Tech, her academic specialization was curriculum and instruction.
Thompson is currently a resident of the Winnsboro / Baskin area where she resides with husband, Mark David Thompson and two daughters, Emily and Melanie.
John Gullatt of Plaquemine, has been selected to be assistant principal to Mrs. Pat Sartin, principal of FPHS. Gullatt, former associate head men's basketball coach at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, has spent the last year as the Head Basketball Coach at West Ouachita Parish High School in West Monroe. He has also served as athletic director at Bossier Parish Community College.
"We're extremely fortunate to have these two working with the students and faculty members," said Franklin Parish School Board Supt. Dr. Lanny Johnson. "Gullatt comes from a long line of educators and Thompson is one of the best in her field."
Gullatt attended the University of Louisiana at Monroe and Louisiana State University where he earned his bachelor of science degree. He is also a graduate of ULM with a master of education degree, currently working toward his plus thirty (+30) degree.
"I am very excited about the opportunity to work with Mrs. Sartin and the teachers here," said Gullatt. "I know it will be a great learning experience for me. We have great leadership from Dr. Johnson with all of his experience in education."
Gullatt resides in West Monroe with wife, Angela Gullatt and four children, Madison, John Bailey, Kinsley and Brooks.
"I'm just happy to have these two on board," said principal Pat Sartin. "They have already made a tremendous difference and I know they will continue to succeed."
