When Francine is not working with children, she is home with her three children Liam, Samuel and Addison and her husband Matt. You can see her at various community events throughout the year. Her favorite activities besides teaching are camping with her family and friends at their seasonal campsite in Massachusetts, going to Syracuse Basketball games in the winter, as well as hosting viewing parties on game nights.
