Hello! My name is Karen Wager and I am thrilled to be a part of Barton Creek Elementary School! I have been working in education in the Austin area since 2001 after I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education from Baylor University. After teaching 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies at O. Henry Middle School in AISD, I transferred to Leander ISD and began working as a school counselor. I graduated with my Master's in Education in School Counseling from Texas State University. I worked at four campuses in Leander ISD over the course of 10 years as school counselor, 504 coordinator, and campus testing coordinator. One of the campus I had the privilege to work at was Rutledge Elementary and there I delivered monthly guidance lessons, lunch bunches, and coordinated school-wide community outreach projects. I love elementary age students and am thrilled to be able to join the Blue Jays this year!
My family and I love to travel, be in the water, and just have fun! My kids are Raleigh (9 yrs) and Carson (3 yrs) and both will be at BCE this year! I'm looking forward to meeting all of you this year and getting to know you!
