Meet Kelli Cannon - 4th Grade

My name is Kelli Cannon and I am from Farmington, New Mexico. I attended BYU and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in teaching ESL students. I have taught in both Nebo and Provo School Districts. This year is my third year teaching fourth grade. 

Fourth grade is my absolute favorite grade to teach because we get to study rocks, minerals, and fossils! I have a gigantic rock collection and love to spend time learning more about geology. My other hobbies include reading and yoga. This past summer was my third year coaching the Provo Recreation Center Swim Team. I am so excited to be working with the staff, students, and parents at Franklin Elementary!


Linnea Rose

Meet Mrs. Linnea Rose - 4th Grade

I was born in Oceanside, California. I grew up there until I was in high school. My family moved to Cedar Hills, Utah when I was a sophomore and graduated from Lone Peak High School. I went to BYU-Provo and taught 5th grade at Geneva and 6th grade at Cherry Hill. I love to read, bake, sing, and play sports. Fun fact: I have a 2nd degree black belt in tae kwon do!  

Meet Janice Hartvigsen - 4th Grade

I was born in Bountiful, Utah and grew up in Kaysville, Utah. I studied elementary education at Brigham Young University. I love to be outdoors hiking, running, and enjoying the wonderful mountains all around us. I am new to Franklin Elementary and I am so excited to be here! 

Meet Robin Clonts - Art Teacher

I grew up in Long Island, NY. I have always been interested in the arts and came to Utah for BYU's Studio Arts Program. There I completed my BFA and Art Ed. Certification. Since graduating I had been working with 'At-Risk' Students and as a Landscape Artist. 

Meet Cassandra Heftel - 1st Grade

My name is Cassandra Heftel and my husband's name is Jeff. I have 3 rambunctious boys, Nathan, Cayden, Dallin and a sweet little girl named Meagan. I graduated from Wasatch High School and from Utah Valley University.  I had the privilege to teach 3rd Grade Duel Immersion at Heber Valley Elementary.  I grew up in Utah and love having the mountains as my backyard.  I enjoy going camping with my family and some of the other fun hobbies I enjoy are: scrapbooking, sewing, playing any type of sports with my children, reading, scuba diving, going on vacation and hanging out with my family and friends. I love being outdoors! My favorite sport is soccer and I love watching my boys compete.  I enjoy dancing and every once in awhile I will perform in musicals.

Meet Stephanie Hall - Preschool

I have always focused my life on young children.  I grew up in Georgia and am the oldest of four girls. I attended BYU and have enjoyed teaching for twenty years.  It is my intense desire to help children grow during the preschool years.  I feel “at home” when children arrive at school and hope to create a “home away from home” in our classroom.  

I love spending time in nature throughout the year.  Some of my favorite experiences are nature walks, gardening, watching for birds and rabbits, and smelling flowers.  I look forward to a magical year at Franklin Elementary. 


Meet Katharine Bolliger - 3rd Grade

I was born in Fullerton, California.  I come from a family of five children. I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah attending Brighton High School. I earned my bachelors degree from the University of Utah in Mathematics Ed. with a Music Ed. minor. I have been an active PTA volunteer for 17 years in Utah, Florida and Texas. While serving in the PTA, I especially loved helping with the A.R. and Reflections Art programs as well as helping in the classes of my three children teaching elementary Sunshine Math classes for 7 years. I've been a private flute instructor for 28 years teaching 7 years in the Round Rock School District middle schools in Texas. As soon as all our children grew up and moved away to  college, my husband and I served a 12 month mission in Kentucky Louisville Mission. Recently, we moved from Austin, Texas to Utah,  and I attended BYU as a post-baccalaureate student to earn my elementary education endorsement. I love to be active,  go for walks, sing and play music, participate in sports, read children's books, take pictures, watch the rays of the sun break through the clouds, and do anything that lifts and serves others.

Franklin 2014 SAGE Tests

Percent Proficient

2013-14 SAGE Summative average proficiencies shown below reflect a new baseline for Utah's end of level testing. The new SAGE test is different than the previous Criteria Referenced Tests (CRT), and more challenging, and therefore cannot be compared to CRT results from previous years. SAGE tests are adaptive, with questions based on new Utah Core standards, and contain technology-based questions versus all multiple choice.
