Ms. Karen Freire

Hello Parents and Students! Welcome! I am a 6th Grade English Language Arts Teacher. I am also the Middle School Girls Soccer Coach. Prior to working in Shull, I worked for 10 years in the criminal justice system. This is what made me pursue a masters degree in education and special education. I first and foremost teach from the heart. I believe that social emotional learning is very important. It is important for our students to feel cared about. I care about each and every one of my students. I became a teacher to make a difference in their lives, put a smile on their face and help them become the best version of themselves. It is truly such a joy seeing them improve their writing, reading and thinking skills. 

It is important to note that learning is a partnership. Students must actively participate during class by paying close attention, thinking, practicing, etc. Students should come to class prepared to learn. Students should always persevere and never give up. Education should be a priority both in school and at home. Learning does not end when they walk out of my classroom but continues in every aspect and moment of life. 
"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today."
