Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Noelle Franzen and I am excited to be a part of the Lexington One District here at Beechwood Middle School. I graduated from Concordia University, Irvine (CA) in 2003 with a B.A. in English. I went on to earn my M.A. in English and my M.Ed. in Secondary Education with an emphasis on Best Practices. I started my teaching career in 2010 at the middle and high school level, teaching 7th, 9th, and 10th concurrently. I went on teach 6th, 7th, and 9th grade ELA for eight more years. I moved to South Carolina in 2018 to be closer to family, and to enjoy a quieter, slower pace of life. I enjoy cooking, spending time with my loved ones and dogs, and writing. I love the beach, walking, exercising, and attending church.
I look forward to working with you, your students, and the community to be the most supportive teacher I can be! I pride myself on excellence, and want only the best for my classes.
