Hi! My name is Karen Tegtmeyer. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Teaching and Secondary Education from Marquette University and a Middle School Endorsement from St. Xavier University. I am also an Archdiocese of Chicago certified catechist. Prior to teaching at SFX, I taught high school English and Literature at Catholic high schools in the Milwaukee area and enjoyed being an Education Director at a learning center. This is my ninth year to teach 8th Grade Language Arts and Literature in Archdiocese of Chicago schools.
As a teacher, I love what I do every day! I also enjoy reading, photography, traveling, relaxing outdoors, cheering for my favorite teams (Cubs, Blackhawks, and MU Golden Eagles to name a few), and spending time with my family and friends.
