Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I am Karen Wong and I am thrilled to join the Skaggs team in my sixth year of teaching! 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 with my husband, baby, and two dogs, playing strategic board games, cooking/baking, and listening to true crime podcasts.
