My name is Lynnae Franken and I am the 4th grade teacher at CWC. My deep hope for each student is that we will learn about Christ and how to be more like Him in our classroom, so we can let our light shine for Him in His Kingdom. I am a graduate of Dordt University with a degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Early Childhood and Special Education. This is my second year teaching, but my first year at CWC. My husband Adam and I live on an acreage near Markesan. I enjoy time with family and friends, water- skiing, baking, doing anything crafty, and just life on the farm. I enjoy teaching as it combines two of my passions- being with young kids and sharing the light of Jesus with them. My favorite bible verse is Psalm 118:24 "This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
