Tonia Maher

7th Grade Language Arts

Hello, my name is Dr. Tonia Maher. I have the great honor to serve, support, and instruct our sixth grade scholars in their ELA content. I have over twenty years of experience in education. I am very passionate and pursue educational excellence in our scholars and ensuring that they accomplish becoming the best version of themselves. I hold four bachelor degrees in education, special education, etc. I also hold a double Master’s in educational leadership. Most recently, I completed and now hold a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership. What led me to Franklin, was the intentional pursuit of what I love in an environment where only the best of best thrive, grow, and achieve. Therefore, Franklin is the ideal place for young and mastery scholars! Outside of sharing all that I am in the classroom, I do enjoy our great outdoors! I love to ski, fly fish, hike, boat, and all four-season activities. I am a huge fan of sports, so you may often find me at extracurricular activities cheering on our Vipers!
