Meet your Teacher! Hi! My name is Kara Quinn. I teach grade 1 at Edmunds Elementary School in Burlington, VT. Prior to teaching Grade 1, I also taught Grades 3,4 and K. I have been teaching in Burlington since 2004.
In 1997, I graduated with a biology degree from Saint Michael's College in Winooski, VT. after graduating, I drove cross country for 3 months and moved out west to Portland, Oregon where I lived for 1.5 years. During this soul-searching time, I did Americorps and learned how to "throw" a mean pizza. in 1999, I moved back to Burlington and did a variety of jobs in farming and education. In 2003, I went back to St. Mike's to get my Elementary Ed teaching license. I later went on to get my masters with a concentration in ELL.
Since 2001, I have lived in Vergennes with my husband Chris. We have two children, Silas, 11, and Marley May, 8. We are very busy working and playing with our kids and friends. As a family we like to swim, paddleboard, ski, hike and play outdoors. I am also an avid yogi and I love to cook. Thanks for checking out my site!
