Welcome to my webpage. My name is Karen Conner, and I am excited to be in my 31st year of teaching- my fourth at Central Cabarrus High School. Previously, I have taught in West Virginia, Kannapolis City Schools, and Stanly County Schools. I have taught all grade levels of high school English as well as Biology, Earth Science, and various electives. I just graduated from Gardner-Webb University in December with a doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction. I look forward to a great semester.
