My name is Mrs. Karen Willis, and I love teaching! I have been teaching and loving children at our school for 14 years. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Liberal Studies from the University of Central Florida. Additionally, I hold an ACSI teaching credential. My teaching philosophy is to meet each child’s personal and academic needs, motivating and inspiring him or her to reach their personal best and grow in their relationship with the Lord. I love to plan and execute hands-on, brain-based lessons that bring the text “alive.” It is my hope and prayer that my students love school and love learning. I pray that each student leaves fourth grade with a smile and a closer relationship with God, along with a desire to bring glory to Him in all they do.
