8th Grade English
Welcome to 8th Grade English! Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Karen Feils, and I will be your teacher this year. I have been a teacher since 2006, when I started to teach 8th grade English and English Honor's. In 2011 I moved to high school to teach Junior and Senior English/Dual Enrollment in Paradise Valley. In 2012, I left the public school classroom to raise my young family while teaching for an online higher learning insitution. I have been married since 2002, and Mr. Feils and I have 4 kids! Aeden is 7 (2nd Grade), Owen is 6 (Kindergarten), Lillian is 4 (Cooley KinderPrep), and Charlotte is 2! When we aren't chasing kids around and keeping them out of trouble, we are swimming, watching movies, and spending time in the mountains!
I went to school to earn a Bachelor's in English from ASU, a Secondary Education degree from ASU, and a Masters in Educational Leadership from GCU. I am incredibly excited to meet you and jump right into the year. Don't hesitate to email me if you need anything, have any questions, or just want to say "hi!"
