Ms. Karen Stinehour
I am Karen Stinehour. This is my 29th year teaching, all in kindergarten. I taught in Morrisville for 14 years and am in my 15th year at Hiawatha in Essex Junction. I love working with kindergarteners and can't imagine teaching anything else! It has been great to work in EJ as this is where I grew up. I graduated from Essex High School in 1984. It is nice to be able to give back to a community that gave me so much.
I am also a mother of two amazing children. My eldest, a freshman in college, is passionate about musical theatre. My son, a sophomore at BFA Fairfax, is passionate about sports, especially hockey. I love being a Mom to two amazing kids. I know first hand the experience of school and value making your child's year in kindergarten an amazing one!
I am very open to collaborating with parents, and I hope to develop a great relationship with families as well as my students. It is always better for kids when we work together!
