Everyone loves our security guard P Wats; Franklin High School would not be the same without this amazing faculty member. She sees you when you’ve been sleeping in class and knows when you’re awake. She knows if you’ve been bad or good so be good for goodness sake! So you better watch out! You better not cry! You better not pout, I’m telling you why.
I recently had the chance to ask P Wats some questions. Read on to learn more about the one and only P Wats…
