Congratulations to our Teacher of the Year!
Ms. Karine Glass!
I am honored to be the 2019 – 2020 Teacher of the Year for Thomas E. Kerns Elementary! I received my B.S. in Psychology from Lander University. I also hold two Masters Degrees: Masters in Special Education from Converse College and Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Webster University. Since 2003, I have taught in Special Education self contained classrooms in many capacities including autistic satellite, developmental, intermediate learning disabled, mild multi-categorical, and provided resource services. My favorite thing about teaching is collaborating with teachers and families to implement the best strategies for my student’s academic, social, and emotional growth. It brings me the greatest joy when I see my students make connections and learn new skills.
