My name is Karen Baugh and literacy & language arts has been a lifelong career focus. My teaching service to our Ludlow Elementary students has varied throughout my 19 years of experience in the roles of regular classroom teacher and special area teacher.
I look forward to guiding my second graders this year through the process of literacy development, and putting to work the knowledge and training from both of my Master's degrees: Reading Specialist K-12 from Xavier University, and English As A Second Language K-12 Certification from Georgetown College. In addition, my students will explore foundational topics in mathematics such as place value, problem-solving, addition, subtraction, money, time and measurement.
I will be collaborating with Ms.Schuh, and Ms. Davies as I value each of their experiences and expertise to support the educational needs of our 2nd grader students. In addition, I also consider it a privilege to work with our students' parents and families to prioritize literacy development and mathematical reasoning and skill building.
Prior to my classroom experience, I was a practicing journalist at two major newspapers for almost 14 years. I hold two Bachelor degrees from Northern Kentucky University: one in journalism, one in elementary education. While teaching elementary students, I also taught and supervised undergraduates and graduates at Xaxier University. I have been a professional singer for many years, and have accomplished work as an artist and in the theater.
I consider it a privilege to serve students of all ages as we move through various learning experiences together.
