Mrs. Karen Coward

My name is Mrs. Coward, and this will be my 18th year of teaching.  I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades.

I have a B.S. in psychology from the College of Charleston and a Masters in teaching from South Carolina State University.  I am also National Board Certified in Early Childhood Education.  I recently completed my 200-hour Yoga certification and Social Emotional Learning Facilitator certification through the Breathe for Change Program.

I have a husband, two daughters, and two dogs at home and we all love to spend time at the river.  I also enjoy reading, photography, and yoga.
