Mr. Brandt, Co-Honor Council sponsor

Emma Reilly, Section Editor

Q: What are the first words that come to mind when you think of Ms. Frank?


A: Kind, dedicated, intelligent and aloof.


Q: What is your favorite memory of Ms. Frank?


A: I’m so fortunate for all the time that I was able to work with her on the Honor Council. And the way that she always put the students at the front of any decision or policy or activity that we undertook.


Q: What was your favorite story Ms. Frank told you about her life?


A: I don’t have a particular favorite story, but she lit up anytime she talked about her dogs and showing her dogs. Another story is that my family has a history of cancer. And so when I told my daughter about Ms. Frank’s cancer, early on, my daughter, on her own, painted a beautiful painting of a morning sky, and she talked about Relay for Life and how there’s that moment in the morning where the lights are shining and you realize that you have to go through the darkness to get to the light.


Q: How do you feel she impacted your life?

A: She has made me a better teacher in that I’ve recognized the differences in my students and the ways that they learn and what really motivates them in life. She’s made me a better member of the honor council by, again, foregrounding the needs of the students.
