Mrs. Karen Rood

I have been teaching kindergarten here at Lowell School for 17 years. Seven years ago I piloted the district's all day kindergarten program and have been teaching that ever since. I enjoy teaching young students and continue to be amazed at what they achieve. My classroom is full of ineractive learning using music, poems and creative projects. I keep in contact with all parents using email, conferences and phone calls.
I have been married to my husband, Jon, for 36 years and have two grown children. Our daughter Kari teaches all day kindergarten at Lincoln School here in Wheaton. Our son Joey lives in Pittsburgh, PA and currently works for The University of Pittsburgh as the Director of Marketing in the Athletic Department. Both of our children are happily married. I love spending time with my family, my grandsons Caleb, Edward and Landon.
