Gaynelle Franklin, Education Liaison
I love being able to ensure that all children are receiving the services that they need and deserve.
She worked in other areas for years, always dealing with the developmentally delayed population. After four years away from the classroom, she returned to teaching. This time in St. Tammany Parish where she taught for another 15 years.

Her life with the developmentally delayed population began early with the birth of her female cousin who was born with Down Syndrome. She fell in love with this population and never wanted to teach any other. There are other members of her family with disabilities as well.
Gaynelle feels this is what has led her to Northshore Families Helping Families. Even though she is retired and her most enjoyable past time is spending time with family, especially her two grandchildren aged 6 and 4; she loves being able to ensure that all children are receiving the services that they need and deserve.
