Hello! My name is Karen Wager and I am thrilled to be a part of Barton Creek Elementary School for my 3rd year! 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. As an elementary counselor, I deliver monthly guidance lessons, lunch bunches, and coordinate school-wide projects! I love elementary age students and am thrilled to be with the Blue Jays again this year!
My family and I love to travel, be in the ocean, lake or pool, and just have fun! My husband, Andy, and I have two kids: Raleigh (11 yrs) who attends WRMS and Carson (5 yrs) who is in Kinder this year at BCE! We also have a white lab puppy named Wilson. He loves to play and constantly interact with anyone he meets. We love being a part of the EANES family and look forward to a fabulous third year!
