My name is Karen Locke and I teach 8th grade Language Arts and a smidge of Spanish at Van Buren Middle School.   I have been at Van Buren for over 20 years.

 

Aside from teaching, I love reading and hanging out with my family.  My husband and I have 3 wonderful children, ranging from college age to middle school as well as 2 darling dogs.

 

I LOVE to create Google slide shows and use them in my classroom nearly every day.  My students are able to access those slide shows on my Google Classroom.  Parents, please ask your student to show you my online classroom.  Powerschool is another digital platform where classroom assignments and information can be found.
