Welcome to Second Grade

Welcome to 2C at St. John Neumann Catholic School. Second grade is an exciting time for students as they are transitioning as the youngest in the school to the more elementary feel.

We are glad you are here!

Meet Mrs. Carr

Mrs. Carr met her husband, John, while attending Peru State College in Peru, Nebraska. She and John married in their junior year and have now been married for 39 years. They have two sons and five grandchildren. The grandbabies are one of the shining lights in Mrs. Carr’s life. She doesn’t get to see them very often, due to distance, but FaceTime’s and speaks with them frequently.
Mrs. Carr has been around the education profession for many years. She has taught 4-year-olds, was an assistant to blind twins, was a teaching assistant in 1st and 2nd grade in California, and substituted in grades k-6. She also taught 1st and 3rd grades in California for three years before moving back to Tennessee. Mrs. Carr feels it was God’s hand that led her to St. John Neumann school, as SJN did not exist when she lived in Tennessee the first time.
Mrs. Carr is in her 11th year at St. John Neumann. She taught 3rd grade for six years, 1st grade for one year, and this is her third year in 2nd grade. No matter what grade she teaches, she loves to bring her creativity and love for learning into the classroom. However, she feels that 2nd grade is extra special because the students are blessed to receive two of the sacraments- First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. She feels it is such an honor and privilege to teach and prepare the students to receive these sacraments.
Beyond teaching the sacraments, Karen loves teaching at SJN because she loves the faith-filled family atmosphere where she gets to be an integral part in helping each student grow their faith and achieve their highest individual potentials.
