Hello! I'm Mrs. Franke, and I love teaching at Immanuel Lutheran School! I grew up in the Columbus area, attending St. John's White Creek Elementary School and Columbus North High School. I graduated from Concordia, River Forest, with a BA in K-12 Education, and from Indiana University with a MS in Language Education. I have my Reading Endorsement and am also certified to teach junior high Language Arts and Mathematics. My husband, Joe, and I are blessed with three children, Alex, Emma, and Anne. We love living on our farm and attending Zion Lutheran Church. Athletics and reading are two of my favorite hobbies. I've enjoyed teaching high school, fifth grade, preschool, and have been delighted to be a part of the Immanuel junior high staff since 2005. I teach English, Literature, and Introduction to German.
