Karen Armstrong, Middle school
Fun Fact: Three generations of my family work or attend Liberty Christian Schools.
I arrived at Liberty Christian Schools in the fall of 2009. I had retired after teaching in public schools for thirty years. At first, retirement sounded great; however, after a few months off, I realized that I missed the magic of the classroom so much that I prayed for another direction. God opened up the door for me to teach sixth grade at Liberty.
This year, I am teaching sixth through eighth grade English and science, and I'm loving it. Middle school students are ever changing and everyday is a surprise. They challenge and encourage me daily, and I find that I learn so much from them. God provides daily for all of our needs, and I am grateful for the opportunity to affect these middle school minds.
