About Me

My name is Karen Pryor and I will be your child’s math and history teacher this year. 

     This will be my 24th year of teaching, and my 14th year in Virginia. My family moved here for the Air Force and when my husband retired, we decided to stay. I am also retired Air Force, I was a Hospital Administrator. This means that I am a stickler for rules and structure, but I also like to make learning fun. I will try to do my best teaching for your child during this challenging year.

     We are on a 2-teacher team: I will teach Math and History and Mrs. Jenkins will teach Language Arts and Science. History will be taught one semester at a time so some students will have have History the first semester and Science the second semester. 

      If you ever need to reach me, my email address is [email protected]. I will post the next week's agenda every Friday to let you know what will be happening in our classroom that upcoming week. 

     I do believe in homework, however, it will only be 5 problems each night, Monday thru Thursday, and should not take more than 30 minutes to finish. If it does take longer, please let me know.

     I look forward to working with your child and feel excited about this year.


Thanks for your attention and please contact me if you have any questions.
