Mrs. Allison Franzen

I was a stay at home mom while my four children were young.  When they got older, I began to teach at School For Young Children.  I also took classes in early childhood education and earned my Teacher Caregiver Certification.  I then worked at More at Four as a teacher assistant while I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University.  After graduating from ASU with highest honors in 2005, I began to teach at Valmead Elementary School.  

I taught first grade from 2005 - 2013, second grade in 2014 and 2015 and last year, 2016, I taught a combination first/second grade class.  I have also provided private tutoring services to Caldwell County students from kindergarten through seventh grade for the paat ten years. 

I love spending time with my family and dogs, antiquing with Mr. Franzen, reading historical fiction, and learning!

I'm excited about about meeing and getting to know your child!  We have so much to explore together in first grade this year!
