Mrs. Frances Banks
Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Frances Banks and this is my sixth year teaching kindergarten. This is my second 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!
Wendy Ronczka is my Instructional Assistant. This year will be her fifteenth year as an Instructional Assistant and she is also a Johnston County bus driver. She is originally from Connecticut but moved to Johnston County in 1996. Wendy and her husband have been married for 38 years. They have two sons, Joe and Nick and a daughter, Summer.
