Ms. Franscella

Hi! I am Candy Franscella.  I am originally from Manteca, CA where I grew up and taught 6th, 5th, 1st, and five years of 3rd grade in my hometown! My family and I love to read, watch movies, hike, fish, and enjoy the outdoors. We made the move to Pocatello, ID in 2006. I taught three years of 4th grade and five years of 3rd grade at Washington Elementary. I was also fortunate enough to provide professional development courses to both administrators and staff across the district in Cultural Perspectives.

I came to West Ada School District in 2014. This will be my eigth year here at Star Elementary and my 24th year of having the privilege to enjoy and facilitate learning to the amazing minds of children! I taught 5 years of 4th grade, two years of 5th grade, and am happy to return to 3rd grade this year.

Teaching children is my passion. I am excited to get to know my new students and am anticipating a fantastic school year of growth, discovery, joy, and significance for your child.

I believe parent involvement is essential to a successful education, and that great communication between home and school are the key to success. I look forward to getting to know parents and other family members so we can work together to provide the best education and experience for your child.
