Mrs. Karen Booker


In 1996 I started teaching in Charlotte, North Carolina, and in 2019 transferred to Central Cabarrus.   I have a wide variety of experiences within the public and the independent school world including leading a Montessori High School, science department chair, and teaching biology as well as physics, art, and psychology.  

Kate and Elizabeth are my high school and middle school-aged children respectively.  They attend Cannon School where their father is the Co-Head of High School.

I enjoy learning or trying new things.  Currently, I am practicing hand embroidery with patterns, macrame, and painting. I enjoy gardening and believe if you are not killing some of your plants you are not stretching yourself in your learning. While I continue to do battle with cancer, 

The 2021 year was full of struggles and I am glad to be transitioning to a new position in 2022 as graduation coach for Central Cabarrus High School.  One of my greatest wishes as a classroom teacher is to help students recognize that they are on a journey of lifelong learning.  In my new role, I hope to make sure every student finds their own path on their great adventure.
