Welcome to First Grade! My name is Aimee Franzen and I could not be more delighted to be your child's teacher this year. I am originally from Indiana and moved to Arizona in 2012. My husband and I, and our four boys love to hike, bike and play games. I am also a HUGE Harry Potter fan! I just know that we are going to have a fantastic year getting to know each other and growing together!

My Education and Professional Background

As long as I can remember, I always wanted to be a teacher. The teachers and experiences that I had in elementary school paved my way towards education. In 2005, I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education from Indiana University. Then, I was fortunate enough to be able to stay home and raise my four boys. After moving from Indiana to Arizona in 2012, I decided to get back into my profession as a teacher. I started substitute teaching with Chandler Unified School District and maintaining my teaching certification for Arizona. In 2017, I officially became part of the Pride family here at Patterson as part of the amazing first grade team and I could not be happier!

My Educational Philosophy

My goal is to instill a lifelong passion for learning by creating a safe, caring, and challenging environment for your child. I believe that the key to academic and social success starts by building a solid foundation at the primary level. I look forward to helping build that foundation here in the First Grade!
