Ms. Karen Beard
My name is Karen Beard and I am a Reading Recovery/Literacy Interventionist at this amazing school! I have been with the district for many years. I have taught first grade, second grade, and this is my 4th year as a Reading Recovery teacher. I am married to Chris Beard, who is a retired principal in the district and he has started a second career in Real Estate. I have two children. My daughter Jenna is a Special Education teacher at Belleview Elementary. She is married to Sam Smith, and they are expecting their first child in March (I am going to be a Kay-Kay!). My son Chandler is a first year P.E. teacher at Bethany Elementary in Clover. I enjoy Bible study, spending time with my family, reading, and baking.
