Mary Frances "Frankie" Jones
Coordinator of Teaching and Learning, Notre Dame ACE Academies; Faculty, Mary Ann Remick Leadership Program
Frankie Jones, an ACE Teaching Fellows graduate, is currently completing her Ph.D. in Policy Studies in Urban Education at the University of Illinois-Chicago. She formerly served as Director of Development for St. Ann Catholic School in Chicago. Jones’s research focuses on the ways in which teachers and school leaders facing intense accountability pressures successfully enact improvement strategies and cultivate productive school properties for authentic student achievement.
In addition to her strong record as an instructor at UIC, Jones’s knowledge of school policy and leadership alongside her own experiences within a “whatever-it-takes’ Catholic K-8 school has tremendous positive effects throughout the ACE community.
