Dear LMES Families,


I am Karen Collins and I will be your child’s second grade teacher this year.  This will be my 15th year at Lake Murray and I cannot think of a better place to be.   I am married, and my husband Greg and I have two daughters, Katie, who is a travel nurse in Denver, Colorado right now, and Abby, who is beginning her second year as a third grade teacher.  We also have two Yorkie Poos, Sophie and Charley.


I look forward to working alongside you this year to help your child continue to grow in all academic areas and I plan to have a lot of fun along the way.  We are going to have a fabulous year!
