About Mr. Frankfort

I am so excited to be Academia Avance's new Middle School Principal. 2 years ago, I returned to Academia Avance as Instructional Coordinator. after 5 years working for both KIPP LA Schools and Equitas Academy. I believe in the success of each of our students and in the importance of strong relationships with families. Working together, we can ensure that your children will have bright futures and a strong sense of pride in themselves and their community. 

 

After a career in the music industry, I entered the education field 11 years ago due to an overwhelming need to do better for our city's youth and to empower the next generation of critical thinkers and leaders. After working at Carver Middle School in South Central, I was brought to Avance by former principal, Jose Varela. While here, I taught 6th and 7th grade Social Studies for 3 years at both the main campus and the Boys & Girls Club satellite campus. I exited Avance to accept a position with KIPP LA Schools in South LA where I was eventually trained for leadership and coaching positions through the KSLP program. I moved on to Equitas Academy and was further trained for coaching and leadership in the BES LENS program. These trainings also offered me the opportunity to observe schools in Houston, Nashville, Boston, and Los Angeles. However, though I had left Avance, Avance had never been far from me.

 

It is with the greatest pride that I step into this role at the school where I began my career in the charter school world. I am here for all students and all families, and I am always available to you.
