Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I'm Karen Wong and this is my seventh year teaching (second year at Skaggs)! I got my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Spanish from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (I-L-L!!) and my master’s degree in Urban Education from Union University through Memphis Teacher Residency. I hope that every student who enters my classrooms feels comfortable to be themselves, supported to learn and grow (especially from mistakes), and challenged to think and solve problems creatively. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, traveling, cooking, and playing strategic board games! I am stoked for another great school year!!!
