Meet Our Faculty
Eric Harrield has had an exciting career, beginning in the music and advertising industries before transitioning into education and coaching — a journey that has been filled with surprising discoveries and victories. Mr. Harrield is enthusiastic about giving back to the Hudson County community and New Jersey, where he grew up. As Franklin’s Director of Co-curricular Programs, Athletic Program Advisor, and PE Teacher, Mr. Harrield will have a hand in shaping all of Franklin’s extracurricular and physical education programs.
We’re thrilled to introduce our new Athletic Director, Brad Greenman! A triple threat, Mr. Greenman is no stranger to balancing roles as an administrator, coach, and teacher. In addition to having been a star athlete in school, he has received numerous accolades, including the 2011 Somerset County Baseball Coach of the Year, as named by The Star Ledger; and the 2017 Basketball Coaches Association of New York State Girls Private School Coach of the Year.
Aridania Luna, who was born in the Dominican Republic, discovered that her true passion was in the classroom and not at the drafting table a few years into her career as an architect. She pivoted in the direction and has taught Spanish at the high school and college level for over three decades.
Originally Brett Colon never intended to pursue art — however, after her portfolio was accepted into the University of Connecticut’s arts program, she never looked back. She recalls how one professor in particular instilled the faith in herself that she needed, giving her the resources, strategies, and time to help her succeed. Ms. Colon aspires to be a mentor in the very same way for her Franklin students as Head of our Visual Arts Program.
When Christina Antico discovered Franklin, she was delighted to learn that she identified with our School’s philosophy and commitment to hands-on learning, and we’re excited that she’s joined our team and Math Department.
