Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Maria Pilaftsidis-Tracy

I usually go by Mrs P. I currently teach 3D design, ADV. 3D design, Painting, ADV. Painting and ADV. Drawing. I graduated with two Bachelor’s in Art education with my two majors and two minors this allows me to be specialized in sculpting, painting, printing and drawing.

I have taught art for 10 years, during that time I realized the power that self expression in Arts have, and the positively empowering experience it can create. Inspired by the wonderful team of authentic educators here at Franklin my mission is to empower young minds with the tools they need to become an agent of  positive change.

For each of my courses, students will have access to a Google Classroom where resources will be posted.  It is extremely important for students to check the Google Classroom daily, especially if they are absent, so they do not fall behind.  I am looking forward to having a great year at Franklin and making your student's experience enjoyable.  If you have any questions please contact me via email at
