Mrs. Karen Darrow

Hello!  This is my ninth year at LPMS, and I am very exited to be back and look forward to another excellent year!  I have an extreme passion for science, which is why I hold a Bachelor's degree in chemistry from New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.   I am also enthusiastic about sharing my understanding and love for science, so what better career than teaching it?  Therefore, in addition to my Bachelor's degree, I hold a Master's degree in secondary science education from CU Boulder.  This year I will continue to lead our 8th grade science department as Chair.

My science classroom is all about the word challenge.  I believe that all students are capable of succeeding, but for a student to really understand and grasp new science concepts that he/she must be challenged to conceptually understand.   I try to make my class about applications rather than memorization and repetitious practice.  It is also about learning skills to succeed beyond my class in high school and beyond.  

If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
