Preschool, 2nd Grade Afternoons

Karen Weiss

My name is Karen Weiss.  I'm excited to be working with FA as a Preschool Teacher and a 2nd-grade teacher this year.  I am loving learning more about STEM (Science,Technolgy, Engineering, and Math) projects and incorporating that into both my Preschool and 2nd-grade classrooms.  

I grew up in Northern Michigan.  I got my undergraduate degree from Central Michigan University in Child Development and Language Arts.  I also got my Master’s Degree through Central Michigan University in Reading. I taught Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten for four years in Hudsonville and prior to that, I have done several long-term subbing positions in various grades.  And I also taught preschool for a couple of years. I've been at home with my children for the past 9 years and have treasured this opportunity. I live in Zeeland with my husband Richard, and three kids: Evan, Grayson, and Tessa. In our free time, we love reading, camping and being active.    

I am excited about this upcoming school year and am looking forward to getting to know your children.
