Ms. Karen Wackerow

Hi! I am Karen Wackerow.  This will be my 15th year at AMS.  I am originally from upstate New York, but I have spent most of my life here in the DFW metroplex.  I graduated from high school in North Carolina and returned to Texas quickly for college. At the University of North Texas, I had the opportunity to study abroad twice - in Spain at Universitat de Valencia and in Scotland at the University of Strathclyde.  It was a great experience that added to my love of traveling and my ambition to learn about other countries and cultures. Now, in my free time, I read books of all genres, run, and am working on my master's degree.
