Michelle Frank Selected as New Assistant Director of Teaching and Learning


The Riverview School District is pleased to announce that Michelle Frank will become the new Assistant Director of Teaching and Learning for the 2022-2023 school year. She will assume this Cabinet-level position in the district, beginning July 1, 2022.


Michelle joined Riverview in the summer of 2019, where she has worked as the Principal of Cherry Valley Elementary. She earned a Masters in Counselor Education from the University of Hawaii-Manoa in 1997, as well as her licensure in Educational Leadership from the University of Colorado, at Colorado Springs, in 2007. Prior to joining Riverview, she was most recently a principal with Federal Way Public Schools and has an extensive background in school counseling and teaching.


“I am beyond excited to accept the position of Assistant Director of Teaching and Learning. In my years as an elementary school principal and assistant principal, fifteen years as a school counselor, and three years of teaching mathematics and chemistry at the high school level, I am excited to bring my experiences and knowledge to this new opportunity,” said Frank. “I love this community and the students we serve and welcome the chance to give back to a community that has given me so much over the years.”


Frank will be stepping into the role previously held by Kristin Edlund, who was named the new Director of Teaching and Learning in April, following the announcement that Assistant Superintendent, Teaching and Learning, Dr. Randy Stocker, will be retiring at the end of the 2022-2023 school year.


Edlund shared her enthusiasm when discussing Frank’s new role.


“Michelle brings a wealth of K-12 experience that enriches our T&L team! I’m looking forward to learning from Michelle, who has years of success engaging families and fostering the trusting relationships that help individuals and teams dig into challenging work. Michelle deeply understands curriculum, instruction, and most of all, people, from her work teaching, counseling, and leading from elementary through high school.”
