Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Karen Thomason Munn. I have completed my twenty-eighth year of teaching. This is my twenty third 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 have also enjoyed integrating STEM activities in my curriculum. My hobbies include taking walks, shopping, cooking, and enjoying the beach. However teaching is a passion that is one of my missions in life.
