My name is Karen Mitchell. This is my 13th year at Zebulon Elementary. I have been teaching for 32 years. I attended Lesley College in Cambridge, MA majoring in Elementary and Special Education. I received my Master’s Degree from Western Connecticut State University. I then attended Fordham University in NYC to work on my doctorate. I completed the program except for the completion of my dissertation. I received a sixth year degree as a Reading Specialist. I teach the Title I Blended preschool program at ZES. I am the mother of three boys (Ryan – 19, Nicholas – 18 and Jake – 13). On the weekends, I work at Marbles Kid’s Museum in Raleigh.
