Mrs. Munn

My name is Karen Thomason Munn.  I have completed my thirty first year of teaching.  This is my twenty sixth year of teaching first grade at Carver Elementary.  Before my time at Carver, I taught for five and one-half years at Briggs Elementary in the third grade. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Clemson University in 1984.  Go Tigers!   I have my master's degree plus thirty hours above my master's degree.  My master's degree is in "Integrating Arts in the Classroom Curriuculum."  I earned that degree from Lesley University in 2001.  Integrating the Arts in the Classroom Curriculum is my philosophy of education because I believe that it is important to integrate as many forms of the arts in the regular classroom in order to provide experiences for all types of learners.  I also enjoy integrating STEM activities in my curriculum.  My hobbies include taking walks, shopping, cooking, and enjoying the beach.  I also enjoy spending time with my husband, son, my daughter-in-law, and my granddaughter.  However teaching is a passion that is one of my missions in life.
