Mrs. Theresa Frank
After 12 years of teaching 1st-3rd graders at Newton, I am very excited to share my love of reading during my second year as J. Larry Newton's Library Media Specialist. Seventeen years ago, I decided to make a career change from corporate buyer to teacher and haven't regretted it once. I taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades for sixteen years before I became a Media Specialist. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of South Alabama. I have a Master's Degree in Curriculum Development with an Emphasis on Reading from Grand Canyon University in Arizona and last year, I completed my second Master's Degree in Library Media. I also earned my National Board Certification about 9 years ago and am currently working to renew it.
I have been married for 27 years and have two beautiful children and one very spoiled yellow lab. Please read more about our library at the link below:
