Hello! My name is Karen Sims. I am on my 14th year teaching at Wood River. I began my teaching career in Minnesota where I grew up and graduated from St. Cloud State University . After 4 years of teaching at a private school there, my husband who also teaches in the district, and I packed up all our belongings and traveled here to Corpus Christi for a new adventure! That was 13 years ago... Here at Wood River I have taught 9 years in 3rd Grade and have recently switched to 2nd Grade. I love teaching Reading and Language Arts. Now l teach all subjects as self contained. I want each child to walk out of my classroom at the end of the year loving to read and write. Sometimes all it takes is one book or author to get them hooked for life! I have been married for over 20 years and have three sons. Asher is in 4th grade and Levi is in 2nd grade. We also have a new precious baby boy who is 6 months old. We love to travel, be outdoors, and have Popcorn Movie Night as a family. A folder will be sent home each day that contains the weekly homework calendar, spelling words, math homework, and behavior chart. Please check the folder daily. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email me.
Thank you for sharing your precious child with me this year!
