Welcome to Third 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 camp and do anything outdoors! 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. Let the magic begin!

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 taught first grade for three years here at Patterson and am thrilled to start my new adventure as part of the wonderful Third Grade team.

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 relationship with your student and their families. I look forward to working alongside you to make sure your child has a successful year!
