Mrs. Karen Bolick
I began my teaching career in 2014 at Valmead Elementary School teaching 4th grade. I switched to 3rd grade in 2015 and have been happily teaching students to "read to learn" ever since. I joined the Eagles of West Lenoir in 2017 and have been SOARing ever since! I can't wait to see how high I can take your children this year!
Favorite book from my childhood:
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
"Children must be taught how to think, not what to think." Margaret Mead
Camping, hiking, reading
I believe what Benjamin Franklin wrote about education: "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Invlolve me and I learn." I hope that I can involve your child in our class activities so that they, too, will learn.
