Hi! My name is Karen Vance, and I am a 1st grade teacher at Wyan-Pine Grove Elementary School. I was originally born in Philadelphia, PA. I was raised in North Wildwood, NJ, and later became a teacher at the school I attended as a child. I earned my teaching degree in 1993 at Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ. I then continued on to earn my Master's Degree in special education at Union College in Barbourville, KY. In 2010, I earned my Rank I in Literacy through the National Board of Certified Teachers.
I have been married to my husband Jack for 24 years. We enjoy traveling and boating with our family, and we have been blessed with 2 beautiful children. Jack Jr. is 22 years old and is a senior at Eastern Kentucky University. Katie is 18 years old, and she is starting her freshman year at EKU as well. We also have a silly 2 year old German Shepherd named Sunny.
As far as personal interests are concerned, I love to go camping. (especially at Fort Wilderness in Disney World) I also like to ride horses, read mystery novels, build LEGO, watch Jurassic Park movies, go to concerts (especially Imagine Dragons) with my daughter, decorate cakes and cupcakes, and travel.
