Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Karen A Compton, MS
2022-2023 marks my 13th year in Plano ISD at Plano East Senior High School and my 19th year teaching overall. I have taught in five different school districts / systems in two different states (Texas and Georgia). I have taught all levels of Chemistry (OnLevel, Honors / Advanced, AP, IB SL and IB HL) as well as Physical Science / IPC, Biology and TAKS Science. I, obviously, *LOVE* teaching AP and IB Chemistry, which is what I get the pleasure of doing at Plano East!!
I'm looking forward to an awesome school year as we all learn and grow!
