Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Frances Banks and this is my seventh year teaching kindergarten. This is my third year teaching at Glendale Kenly. I am excited to be here and look forward to a great year! Onslow County is where I was born and raised. My husband Roger and I have lived in Pine Level since 2001. He is the pastor of Smithfield First PH Church in Smithfield. We have a daughter, Jessica. Jessica and Jonathan have two children, my grandbabies, Nathan and Landon. My son Jason has a lovely wife, Aubrey. I enjoy spending time with my family. East Carolina is where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Reading K-12. It's going to be a great year!
