Frances Robbins, Principal at Brimley Elementary School, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in elementary education and administration.
Now retired, Ms. Robbins led a prolific career as a teacher for more than 40 years. Driven by her mother’s encouragement, she pursued a formal education at Central Michigan University and completed undergraduate coursework in 1948. Consequently, she was hired by Rose City Elementary School in Michigan where she taught kindergarten children for three years. After a 10-year hiatus, she continued teaching at Rudyard Elementary School, Pickford Elementary School, and Skandia Elementary School, between 1961 and 1966. Eventually, she earned a Bachelor of Science in 1967 and a Master of Arts in 1974, from Northern Michigan University.
Furthermore, Ms. Robbins found success at Brimley Elementary School, where she began teaching kindergarten students in 1966. As she advanced with the institution, she held the post of a coordinator before concluding her tenure as the principal in 1995. In addition to her primary responsibilities, she has served as an adjunct professor and a supervisor of interim teachers at Michigan State University as well as Lake Superior State University in 1997. In a career filled with many highlights, Ms. Robbins was proud to have assisted in the development of an academic program for the Bay Mill’s Native American community who had a disproportionate educational system and opportunity than non-Native American students. After the educational reforms commenced for the Native American students, they began to perform academically at a higher level than ever before in their community. For her accomplishments in the field, she has been a recipient of numerous accolades and was presented the Albert Nelson Marquis Achievement Award.
