Welcome to Technology!

We have 2 technology teachers at Franklin Ave. School! Mrs. Hanson teaches our remote children, and Mr. Kochanek teaches our hybrid learners.

Mr. Kochanek

My name is Mr. Kochanek, and I'm the technology teacher at Franklin Ave and Southampton Road Elementary Schools. I'm so excited to be here, and I hope to teach many new skills using the technology available to us.

I've been teaching for over 30 years, all in the Westfield Public School system. I've been a 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, resource room, and tech teacher at  Juniper Park, Papermill, Southampton Road, and now Franklin Avenue Schools.  My goal is to help train our kids to be responsible tech users while they learn the MA Digital Literacy and Computer Science curriculum.  

I have many projects for your kids to create while they're with me in the computer lab!

My name is Mrs. Hanson and I am excited to be teaching Technology at Franklin Avenue Elementary School and Abner Gibbs Elementary School.  I was born and raised in New Hampshire.  I attended Mount Holyoke College and Antioch New England University.  When I am not on a computer I enjoy playing sports, reading and dancing.
