Mr. Frank Isley

I am excited to be in my tenth year teaching at Hickory Ridge. I began teaching high school English eighteen years ago after a career in journalism. Continually learning new things and sharing that knowledge with others is one of the things that I enjoy most about teaching, and I hope to instill in my students a similar desire to always look for opportunities to learn and grow.
