Hi, my name is Karen Peel and I'm proud to be a teacher at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School! I received my B.S from the University of Missouri and my Master of Arts in Teaching at University of Memphis. Teaching is a second career for me. In my first career I was a retail fashion buyer. I have been teaching at SFA for seventeen years. I began as an Enhance Intervention/Enrichment teacher and have now been teaching first grade for twelve years. I enjoy helping children become responsible students who love to learn!
My husband and I have two children who graduated from SFA/St. Benedict High School. Both schools prepared them to be successful college graduates. In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, reading, and spending time with my family and friends.
