My name is Karen Chapa and I was born and raised in Lockhart. I attended Texas State University where I graduated Magna Cum Laude and received a Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis on Early Childhood Education. I have taught first, second, and third grade at Clear Fork Elementary and am extremely excited to spend my 8th year at Strawn! I have a wonderful husband and a 3 year old Labrador. In my spare time, I enjoy running, swimming, watching the San Antonio Spurs, listening to live Texas country music, crafting, and spending time with my beautiful family and friends! Some of my favorite things include the color gold, coffee, salsa, & anything organic.
I am delighted to be sharing this year with you and your family. I want to enter into a partnership between home and school dedicated to nurturing growth and inspiring achievement in your child. It is my hope that we can work together to ensure that your child has the best possible third grade experience. Together, we can create a positive learning environment. I invite you all to participate in class activities, volunteer, and become an active part of your child's school year. I appreciate your support and want you to know you are always welcome in our classroom.
