Dr. Karen Conner

Welcome to my webpage. My name is Karen Conner, and I am excited to be in my 32nd year of teaching- my fifth 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. Please feel free to contact me at karen.conner@cabarrus.k12.nc.us or at extension 40310.
