Hello! My name is Karen Gerhart. I love teaching fifth grade! I have my bachelor's degree in Hospitality Management from East Stroudsburg University. After working in the hotel and country club business as an event planner and in sales, I decided to go back to school to fulfill my childhood dream of teaching. I completed my teaching certificate from Prescott University and completed my studies with a masters degree in Reading and Literacy from MaryGrove College. I have taught Title One, first and fifth grades.
