Hi, I am Karen Hosek and I am so excited about the beginning of a new year at St. Susanna. I love PreK and look forward to a wonderful year with our new students. I come from a family heavily involved in education. My grandfather, grandmother, mother, father, two sisters, daughter, daughter-in law, sister-in-law, and brother-in-law, along with me, have worked with sixteen different school corporations, in three states. I have a Bachelor and Master’s degree in education from ISU. With the exception of second grade I have taught all grades from preschool through sixth. Each was delightful in its own way. I enjoy spending time with family, which includes two children and five grandchildren. Other interests are traveling, walking, and reading. I have traveled from the Pacific Northwest to the Atlantic Southeast and many points in between. I have also had the pleasure of visiting seven foreign countries. When you are in the building, please feel free to stop by and say “hi” to PreK. I can guarantee you will have fun with us!
