4th Grade Teacher
4th Grade Teacher
Hiya! My name is Karen Avery. I am very excited to start my second year at SanTan! This will be my twelfth year teaching and my 14th year working in a school setting. I was born and raised on Long Island in New York. I attended Long Island University at C.W.Post (now known as LIUPost) where I earned my Bachelor's in Psychology in May 2005. In 2007 I began working in a school which rekindled my love for working with students. I earned my Masters in Education in 2010 and excitedly continued on my teaching path.
Some of my favorite things to do are going for a bike ride, swimming, playing just about any sport, and spending time with my family and friends. My husband and I were married in July 2005. Together we have two sons, Elijah and Alexander. We are expecting our first Daughter in January 2021!
From an early age, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. Being able to help others make something possible that once seemed impossible gives me such a fulfilling feeling and I’m lucky enough to get to do this every day.
