My name is Karen Towns . I have been teaching at Pirie School for 26 years and taught 4th grade for 7 years. I enjoy teaching language arts because I have an opportunity to be creative and integrate other subjects. Teaching language arts has been most enjoyable because I can also bring in drama with reading and this helps students to get a better understanding of the text being presented.
