Mrs. Karen Harvey
Hello, My name is Karen Harvey, and I've had the privilege of attending Hiawatha Elementary School myself and sending my two children here as well. It’s wonderful to be teaching first grade in the same classroom I attended first grade in! I graduated from Trinity College in 1993 with majors in Elementary Education and Psychology. I received my Masters in Education from the University of VT in 2001. This is my 30th year teaching in the Essex-Westford School District. I have taught first grade for ten years, second for one year and, prior to becoming a classroom teacher, I was a district math specialist working with teachers and students in grades K-5.
