One of Frank’s colleagues said, “Frank is successful in establishing a genuine and positive relationship with those whom he works. He genuinely cares about each individual and makes everyone feel as though they are the most important person in the world. He consistently shows exceptional management techniques with some of our most difficult people. Frank is an extra-miler in every respect and is willing to undertake any assignment that he is given.”
“I want to thank the School Board, Superintendent Nielsen, Julie Warren, Steve Maughan, and my wife. I am excited to work with Matt Gledhill and look forward to working and making an impact on our school system. I am grateful to my fellow elementary principals, teachers, and staff. There is no better job than being an elementary principal,” said Frank. “I have loved every position I have held in education. Being a principal at Taylor Elementary and Spring Lake Elementary has allowed me to work with wonderful staff, parents, and especially students. I look forward to my new position and getting to work with new people.”
One of Frank’s mottos is “Treat others the way you want your spouse and children treated.” He stated, “My parents made a difference in my life. They always taught me the value of hard work and shown me the importance of treating all people with kindness and concern regardless of their position in life.”
