Karen Vance - Outstanding Special Education Teacher

Karen Vance - Outstanding Special Education Teacher!
Karen Vance, Special Education Teacher at Lake Superior School District is the teacher spotlight of the month! Karen was nominated by a colleague because she is open minded and diligent. She's willing to try new things and works hard to help students. Specifically, she spent time last spring and this summer to revamp the transition programming for a student and developed a schedule that integrated resources in the school and community. 

This is the start of Karen's 8th year in the Lake Superior School District. Prior to that, she taught for five years in the Milaca School District in Milaca, MN. Her favorite part of working in Special Education is the students. They are all so unique, and she loves when things click for them. Because she spends so many years with them, she really gets to know them and their families. In her free time, she really enjoys spending time with her family. She has been married over 33 years to her husband, Russell, and they have two grown children, Samantha and Nick; a son-in-law, Mike; and two grandchildren, Kaden and Kaia. 

Congratulations Karen!
