Mrs. Karen Carrie is an incoming teacher with a lot of talent to offer and a super catchy name. She specializes in graphic design, fashion design, photography, and yearbook. Mrs. Carrie graduated from the University of Millersville, a top-notch public institution located in Pennsylvania.
Before deciding to join the Fairmont family, this new teacher taught in Washington D.C. and Virginia and just moved here recently, having taught creative movement to preschoolers, art to elementary students, and a wealth of art subjects to an adult class as well.
What she is looking forward to at Fairmont is becoming thoroughly involved within the school and getting to know her students as both a professional and caring nurturer. Throughout the school year, she will be excited to see how her students’ projects turn out and watching their collective ideas and creative juices flow out effortlessly. Mrs. Carrie’s advice for the school year is to be yourself, enjoy the high school experience, and really savor it because it doesn’t last very long.
Something interesting about her is that she LOVES to shop at thrift and vintage stores. She feels that it’s like finding her own little treasures. Lastly, her room is filled with creative artwork, colors, and projects because she strongly feels that students should be able to create their own personal space within her room.
This is the REAL Mrs. Karen Carrie and we are ecstatic to have her as a part of the Fairmont Preparatory Academy.
