Karen Birney - 3rd & 4th Grades

Our 3rd and 4th grade classroom is under the direction of Karen Birney. She loves the moments in teaching when students are enthused about something they are learning or when they are in the process of conquering their challenges.

Mrs. Birney graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Education. She began her teaching experience with four years spent in Canada, followed by several years in California. She is currently on her 32nd year teaching. Her experience includes teaching grades 1-10 including choir.

Karen loves camping, hiking and sight-seeing with her family (husband Alan and two adult children). When she has some time away from the classroom, she enjoys puzzles, cooking, and reading as hobbies to relax from the busyness of school.
