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 tenth year to teach 8th Grade Language Arts and Literature in Archdiocese of Chicago schools and my sixth year at SFX.I believe all students are individual and everyone can learn in a safe community that fosters collaboration and communication.
As a teacher, I love what I do everyday! 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.
