Karen Lagan
Second Grade Teacher

My name is Karen Lagan. I attended Austin Peay State University. I began teaching in 1993.  I have taught academics in kindergarten through second, and fifth/sixth split.  I love working with children and I wanted to be with my own children throughout their education. My husband and my own children inspired me to become a teacher. I love seeing their eyes light up when they accomplish a goal such as reading a book for the first time or solving a problem. I also love it when they accidently say “mom” instead of Mrs. Lagan, this really feels my heart. If you are comfortable enough to call someone mom, you feel loved.

Second Grade Teacher

My name is Katherine Sheffield.  I attended University of Tennessee. I started teaching in Louisiana in 1984. I started teaching in the second grade. I have taught from first grade to a split fourth/fifth grade. My favorite aunt and uncle were both educators. They noticed when were all together, that I always wanted to play school with my younger cousins. When I got older, they told me they thought I would make a great teacher. I really love being able to interact with the children with ease. I want them to know, without telling them, that I care a lot about them.
