It is with great pleasure and excitement to introduce myself to you. My name is Karen Frantz. This is my 2nd year as a part-time preschool teacher, and prior to teaching preschool I was one of the special education teachers here at Hygiene for 2 years. Prior to teaching in the St. Vrain Valley School District, I was a teacher for 11 years in Jeffco, and I also taught for 5 years in Illinois. This will be my 19th year of teaching. I have taught general education grades 1, 2, 3, & 5, and I was also an ESL (English as a second language) teacher and worked with teachers and students grades K-6. I am thrilled to be a part of the Hygiene “Early Childhood family” and forward to a year of excitement, smiles, growth, accomplishments and relationships.
Outside of school I throughly enjoy spending time with my family. I have a 5 year old daughter who keeps me busy! She is a dancer, rock climber, skier and swimmer. As a family we spent as much time as we can on the mountains skiing in the winter and traveling in the summer.
