Know Your Pelicans - Fran Onne-Fong


#KnowYourPelicans: Fran Onne-Fong

Pre and Lower School Music Teacher


How many years have you taught at Packer and what have you taught?

I've taught music to Pre and Lower School students for 18 years.

What do you look forward to the most in retirement? What will you miss most?

Being with my grandson and my family. I will miss my friends, colleagues, students, and families at Packer, and especially the Arts Department.

What is your favorite thing about Packer?

The community spirit and support.

Describe a favorite or memorable moment in your classroom at Packer.

In 2015, Lower School Art Teacher Risa Glickman, Dance Teacher Alicia White, the Kindergarten teachers and I worked together on an interdisciplinary project involving Camille Saint-Saens' Le carnaval des animaux. The children made fish hats to dance to "Aquarium" and hens/rooster shadow puppets for "Hens and Roosters." We performed it in my classroom.
