Hi! I’m Karen. I teach 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts in a K-12 laboratory school in Indiana. I recently passed the state exam for licensure in gifted and talented (or high ability) education, and I just began working on a Master’s degree in curriculum. For my school, I developed a new teacher induction program, which is in its first year, and I mentor one of our new teachers. Additionally, I co-sponsor middle school student council and do the planning and organizing for the 7th grade class field trip.
I’m passionate about high ability students, curriculum, and a positive school culture.
