Mrs. Karen Proctor
My first teaching experiences were in my parents’ basement where I taught all my stuffed animals. My love for teaching grew, and I attended Meredith college as a NC Teaching Fellow. I started teaching 3rd grade at Dillard Drive and Reedy Creek Elementary Schools. Then I moved to Oak Grove in 2003. After a two year adventure living in Belgium, I returned to Oak Grove in 2010. Since 2011, I have taught 5th grade on track 3. I love fifth graders, and my favorite subjects are social studies and math. I enjoy learning new technologies and look for ways to include them in my class. As part of the Oak Grove Community, I enjoy helping with the Holly Jolly Holiday Tree Project, coordinating the Chef Ollie Breakfast, and leading the girls running club.
During track outs, My husband and I enjoy traveling with our son, Brady. We also like running, cooking, and reading.
