Principal - Jennie Alderman 

My love for education began 23 years ago. I have taught 4th grade, Kindergarten, and was a Reading Interventionist in various buildings in the Blue Springs School District. I have been a lead Principal for the past 10 years serving at James Lewis Elementary and William Bryant Elementary. This is my first year at Franklin Smith, and I have loved getting to know the students, staff, and parents.

Assistant Principal - Brian Hartstack 

This is my 15th year in the Blue Springs School District. I began my career at James Walker Elementary where I taught both 3rd and 4th grade. I spent the past five years as the assistant principal at Chapel Lakes, Lucy Franklin, William Bryant, and William Yates Elementary. I am looking forward to a wonderful year at Franklin Smith and I am honored to be a part of such an amazing staff.
