During this time of virtual learning, the Canvas Learning Platform incorporating common core state standards and essential online experiences are of significant interest.

Karin has enjoyed working in the front office since 2017. She enjoys being there for the students and parents when they come into the office. Karin has worked in various accounting positions for 20 years and that experience made it easy for her to transition into the Office Manager position.
