Mrs. Karen Bolick
In 2014, I began my teaching career at Valmead Elementary School teaching 4th grade. I switched to 3rd grade in 2015 and have been happily teaching students to "read to learn" ever since. In 2017, I joined the Eagles of West Lenoir and have been SOARing ever since! This year begins another new adventure for me as the 3rd Grade Caldwell Connect teacher in our new virtual school.
Favorite book from my childhood:
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
"Children must be taught how to think, not what to think." Margaret Mead
Camping, hiking, kayaking, reading, cooking
I believe what Benjamin Franklin wrote about education: "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Invlolve me and I learn." My goal is to involve your child in our class activities so that they, too, will learn.
