contact me Hello! My name is Karen Sims. I am on my 16th year teaching at Wood River and entering my 20th year of teaching total. 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 15 years ago... Here at Wood River I have taught 9 years in 3rd Grade and switched to 2nd Grade in 2013. 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 6th grade and Levi is in 4th grade. We also have a baby boy who is 2 years 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!
