Hello and Welcome to First Grade!

    I am so excited to start out another year here at Fawn Mountain Elementary. My name is Karen Malone and I will be your child’s first grade teacher this year. To have a place of growing knowledge and acceptance is what I want for my classroom.

    I hope that we will be able to work towards a successful year together.In the past few years I know I have had the siblings of a number of my incoming students. I am in room 143 across from the kindergarten classrooms. For those of you who don’t know me I have been in the district since 2006.  I have taught preschool, kindergarten, and now first grade. It so far has been my favorite grade level to teach! I am married to Mark and I have two children, who aren’t children anymore.  have two dogs, three cats, and a 15-foot-long albino Burmese python named Boo. I graduated from the University of Tennessee, and I moved to Alaska from Georgia in 2005 and spent a year teaching in Barrow before coming to Ketchikan.

     For those of you wondering about contact information you can call 228-2200 and they can put you through to my classroom. You can also contact me by email by going through the school website where you will find lots of information including a school supply list. The class website is your go-to place for information you may usually need to ask me. It will be updated with more information as we get closer to August, 2020.

    I like forward to meeting everyone. We are a classroom that loves books, art, playing, learning, and most of all each other!
