Degrees and Certifications:
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 Curriculum." 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 experience for all types of learners. I also enjoy integrating STEM activities into my curriculum. My hobbies include taking walks, shopping, cooking, and enjoying the beach. I also enjoy spending time with my family. However, teaching is a passion that is one of my missions in life.
