Señora Frank has been a Spanish teacher since 2005. Graduating from St. Lawrence University, Señora Frank spent a semester abroad in Madrid, Spain appreciating the Spanish language and culture by ordering and then devouring many Spanish meals. Señora Frank wears many sombreros, including Foreign Language Department Head, 9-12 Yearbook Co-Advisor, and Key Club Faculty Advisor, in addition to teaching Spanish classes at all high school levels. Señora Frank has also served as Summer School Principal for the past six years.
Señora Frank believes immersion is the best way to develop proficiency in a foreign language. She can often be found explaining a concept ten times in Spanish to gain student understanding before giving a simple answer in English. Señora Frank is also a firm believer in fun!
In 2007, Señora Frank was named New York District Key Club William O. Hamilton Distinguished Faculty Advisor for her work with the community service organization. She was especially proud since this award was nominated by her students without her knowledge!
Señora Frank graduated from St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Spanish and a certification minor in Education. In 2005, Señora Frank received her Master's Degree in Educational Administration from St. Lawrence University.
Mrs. Frank has a daughter, Chloe, who has apparently learned Spanish in-utero, since while out to dinner last week she said, "camarera" to our waitress!
