Ms. Karen Stafford

Welcome to Ms. Stafford's class webpage! I have been teaching 5th grade here at Fox Run Elementary School since 2014, and have been teaching since 2011. I am a proud graduate of Texas A&M San Antonio and the University of Washington. Education is my passion, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with your student this school year.

In our class, we work hard to create a community of learners who support and encourage one another. Goal setting and leadership positions play a key role in our classroom. My goal for your student is to help them strengthen their academic foundation while encouraging them to explore their individual interests and talents. I view learning as a partnership between families, students, and the school community; by working closely together as a team, we can provide your student with the best educational experience possible. I look forward to working closely with you to ensure your child has a successful year in fifth grade. 

When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy traveling, exercising, baking, reading, and spending time with my family. 

I look forward to getting to know you and your child this school year!
