About the teacher

  • Hi Kindergarten parents!

    My name is Andrea Frank and this is my sixth year teaching at Millburn Elementary School District 24. Before joining the Millburn team, I taught Early Childhood/Special Education, Second and Third grade.  I was also able to stay home and run a daycare out of my house for 9 years while my boys were young.

    I have two amazing boys!  Gavin is 16 and a Sophmore at Antioch High School while my youngest, Alex is 13 and in 8th grade.  I have been married for 17 years to my wonderful husband Jon and we also are proud parents of two labs- Bella(black lab-9 years old) and Jax(yellow lab-5 year old). With my boys playing sports non stop and keeping up with my active dogs, it's difficult to find time for myself.

    I graduated from Illinois State University in 1999 with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education with an endorsement in Special Education.  In 2018, I received my Masters in Curricuum and Instruction with an endorsement in English as a Second Language.

    I look forward to a fun filled year!
