Karen Stevens, M.Ed, 2nd Grade Teacher

DECKER PRAIRIE ELEMENTARY

Hi and Welcome to my Web page!  My name is Karen Stevens and I teach 2nd grade at Decker Prairie Elementary!  Go Cougars!!!  I am excited about the 2020 - 2021 School year!  This is my 3rd year here at DPES; however, my 10th year teaching.  I have taught Kindergarten, 4th Grade, and 2nd Grade.  I also was an Instructional Paraprofessional before receiving my teaching degree at the University of Houston Downtown.  Due to my passion for learning, I earned my Masters Degree at Texas A&M in College Station.  Whoop! Whoop!  In addition, I am a mom of 3 amazing boys and I have been married for over 20 years to my husband Scott. Our family would not be complete without our Boston Terrier Jake!  I love anything Boston Terrior.   I have lived in the Tomball/ Magnolia Area since 1998, and before that, I was in the Air Force at Kirtland Air Force in Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

Once again, I would like to share my joy and enthusiasm for being your child's teacher and excited to watch them grow and learn!  If you have any questions please feel free to email me anytime.  Let Level Up this year!!
