Hello! My name is Karen Eachus and this year begins my 24th year of teaching at Magowan! I grew up in Edgewater Park and feel a true connection to this community. I am a graduate of Sacramento State University, Chapman University and Rowan University with degrees in both regular and special education. In 2005 I completed my Masters in Education focusing my thesis on integrating sign language with phonemic development. My first two years at Magowan I taught second grade and was fortunate enough to be a part of the first full day kindergarten program which became my home for the next 10 years. I have also taught special needs kindergarten/ first grade, have supported students as a Language Arts Resource /Title teacher in 3rd and 4th grades and taught a memorable 4 years in second grade. This year I am happy to begin my 4th year back in Kindergarten! It is so much fun for me to watch the developmental 'leaps' that the children make at this age. I think Kindergarten is the best!
I can't wait to meet my kiddos!
