Carolyn Karger

Welcome to Mrs. Karger's English I Pre-AP class this year!  I am starting my 30th year of teaching and my 25th here at MacArthur. Being an Army brat, my family and I moved eleven times before settling here in San Antonio my junior year of high school.  I graduated from Roosevelt High School and then went to the University of Texas in Austin and received my BA in English.  Being a product of NEISD, I really wanted to teach in this great district.  My first 4 years of teaching were at Ed White Middle School where I taught 8th grade English, coached the tennis team, and co-sponsored Student Council. Currently, I teach English I Pre-AP and serve as the Instructional Dean of English as well.

MacArthur is my home!  Beside the burnt orange in my blood, I bleed Brahma blue. Both of my sons graduated from Mac (Class of 2011 and 2014) solidifying my love for this wonderful school.  I am looking forward to another great year -- Go Brahmas!
