Mrs. Karen Schotta
I have 2 gorgeous sons and a beautiful daughter-in-law. My oldest son has been married for several years. They have no children yet though, so I am not a grandparent. Although, I pray that I will be someday. My youngest son is a senior in college this year and will be applying for medical school soon. It absolutely broke my heart to have both of my children leave home, but I am more proud of them than words can express. They have both turned out to be fine young men able to stand on their own. It is so, so true that they grow up in what seems the blink of an eye.
Between working as a P.E. Aide, Pre-K Aide, a few interim positions, and my first grade classroom, I have been with Baldwin County Board of Education for the past 11 years. However, I can honestly say that teaching first grade here, at Foley Elementary School, has been the best and most memorable teaching experience for me yet. This school has my heart! FOLEY LIONS ROCK!!!
