Mrs. Frances Newton

I am excited to continue my career as an Assistant Principal at J.P. Elder Middle School.  


I was born and raised in Fort Worth, and I continue to reside in the community and area I grew to enjoy over the years.


I have worked for FWISD for 28 years, and I am excited to continue my educational journey at J.P. Elder.  I first graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree from Texas Woman's University.  After teaching in the classroom for a few years, I decided to go back to college and obtained a Master of Education Degree from Texas Christian University.  


As we begin this school year, students will start the year, facing many challenges.  I believe students will continue to grow and thrive despite the difficulties presented.  I anticipate that we will have an outstanding year as students and parents connect and grow with the everchanging education environment.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.


A favorite quote of mine from Nelson Mandela writes, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." It is essential to know that with education comes an endless supply of opportunities for yourself, so taking that mindset for myself and instilling it into students will inspire and provide character growth.
