Karen Walters has accepted the position of teaching grades 3-6 at Green Bay Adventist Junior Academy. By degree, she is a Family and Consumer Sciences teacher – the new name for Home Economics. In the past Karen has enjoyed teaching 3rd-8th grades at Adventist schools and says, “I love to facilitate such practical subjects as Food and Nutrition, Independent Living, and Human Development with 7th-10th grades.”
Originally from Spokane, Washington, Karen grew up on a wheat farm just west of the city and most of her extended family still live in that area. Prior to becoming a teacher, she worked for several local health districts as an environmental health specialist. She and her husband Jerry have two daughters. Karen’s hobbies include sewing, quilting, crocheting for charity, reading, cooking/baking, hiking and bike riding. One of her goals is to visit all of the national parks.
Karen says, “I am very much looking forward to being the 3rd-6th grade teacher a GBAJA” and “I can hardly wait to explore the beauty of the Green Bay area.”
