Marn Frank served as a reading specialist for ATLAS and coordinated the Minnesota STAR project (STudent Achievement in Reading) from 2008-2021. Marn’s extensive background includes a BS in Elementary Education, a M.Ed. in Special Education from the University of Minnesota, and additional licensure in Emotional Behavior Disorders, Specific Learning Disabilities, and Adult Education. She worked in the field of education for over 40 years, and she was involved in Minnesota Adult Basic Education for over 25 years as a teacher, coordinator, specialist, trainer, and presenter. She developed a multitude of high-quality resources that are still being used by ATLAS and the ABE field today.
Marn retired in June 2021, and ATLAS wishes her all the very best in her retirement! We hope to collaborate with Marn on special reading-related projects in the future.
