Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Karmen Harden

I am a Texas certified educator (Computer Science 8-12). I am an AP and IB trained educator with teaching and guidance experience courses including: AP Computer Science, IB SL and HL Computer Science, Computer Science 1 and 2 at Plano East High School and the School of Science and Engineering Magnet in Dallas. I have corporate experience with Ford Motor Company, AT&T Bell Laboratories, Motorola, and Compuware Corporation.

Along with teaching, I provide real estate services. I am active in the community with One Community Church, Jack & Jill of America, and Imagine International Academy of North Texas. I live in McKinney and my #1 role is being a mommy to my two young daughters. In my "limited" spare time, I love spending time with family and friends, doing Cardio Dance classes and reading urban and mystery books. I'd characterize my class as being fun with the ultimate goal to see my students grow in their understanding of computer science and in life. 

I am from Detroit, MI and began my exploration in computer science from a very early age of 8 years old and continued on through Cass Technical High School. I earned a BS in Computer Information Systems from Florida A&M University and returned to Michigan for my MS in Computer Science and Engineering from Michigan State University.
