Mrs. Katie Franczyk

Welcome to 8th Grade Language Arts. This year is my 10th year teaching at Plank, and I could not be more excited. I am a graduate of Illinois State (Go Redbirds!), where I received my Bachelor's in Education. I also have my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University. In my free time, I love to take pictures and enjoy time with my family.


I love teaching 8th grade because it is the last step before going off into high school. This is the year where were get to fine-tune our reading, writing, and study skills before high school. I hope to help as many of you as possible before you walk out of our doors in May!


I look forward to another great year as a Pirate!
