Mrs. Beverly Franqui
My name is Mrs. Beverly Y. Franqui and I teach 5th-grade English-Language Arts, Reading, Science, and Health at Blythe Elementary School. I was born in Fayetteville, West Virginia, and moved to Georgia with my parents in 1986. I attended Blythe Elementary for my 4th and 5th-grade academic years, then Hephzibah Middle for 6th-8th. I graduated with honors from Hephzibah High School in 1994, then went on to graduate with honors from Augusta State University with a Bachelor of Science in Education, and then a Master of Education in Instruction from Augusta University. I was the 2009 Richmond-Columbia County PTA Educator of the Year, and the 2008-2009, 2015-2016, and 2022-2023 Blythe Elementary Teacher of the Year.
I am married to Mr. F. Joey Franqui, Chorus Teacher at Burke County High School, and we have two children. Our son, Noah Franqui, is 25 years old and our daughter, Haleigh Franqui Black, is 24 years old. I am also a dog lover, and my husband and I live in Blythe with our three dogs; Scrappy, Buddy, and Tater. I feel a strong connection and loyalty to my church, school, and community. I love working with children and I want to be a positive influence on their lives.
