About Mrs. CorbettDear Families,
I'm Karen Corbett and I’m excited to be your child’s 2nd grade teacher for the 2020-2021 school year! For twenty-nine years I've worked in education as we moved to different parts of the country during my husband's career as a U.S. Marine Officer. Despite our many moves, we maintain our Ohio roots and enjoy cheering on our Ohio State Buckeyes! (O-H!)
Prior to Arizona, I taught 1st grade in Las Vegas for eight years. I've taught 2nd grade for eleven years and 3rd grade for one in Kyrene's schools. I look forward to getting to know your child and watching them grow both academically and socially! A primary goal of mine will be to help make 2nd grade a place that is safe to take risks in learning, facilitates pride in personal growth, and promotes healthy social interaction where students enjoy their peers in the most positive ways!
Having raised two daughters, I know how important the early school years are as a foundation for future academic and personal success. In short, please know that I'm extremely committed to providing a positive year of learning for my students. I look forward to teaming with you to make your child’s year a memorable and successful one.
