Mrs. Dawn L. Smith

Principal      Extension 41250 
It is a privilege to serve another year as the principal of Benjamin Franklin Elementary, the finest school in Riverside Unified School District!  
I have been an elementary and middle school teacher, staff development specialist for Instructional Technology, Instructional Specialist for K-6 Mathematics, Assistant Principal, and Principal.  Our school is extraordinary in many ways;  our teachers and families exemplify the phrase "school community" and we encourage you to become involved!   I enjoy meeting with all of our parents and have an open door policy. As I am likely out on campus or in classrooms,  please contact Mrs. Gladden (ext. 41251)  if you would like to make an appointment. Welcome!
