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!
