Hello, I am Lindsay Franco! I am so excited to be teaching English I Pre-AP and AVID III this year at Travis High School!! This will be my seventh year teaching freshman English, and it is certainly my passion in life to be in education. I knew when I was a little girl that I wanted to be a teacher. I am also looking forward to having the AVID program in my classroom! I graduated in 2013 from Texas State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature and have been teaching since then. I strive to make my classroom a collaborative and safe environment where students’ opinions and thoughts are valued and nurtured. I believe that kindness and compassion are key to being successful in life and help my students to understand the world and others around them through the art of literature and analysis.
