5th Grade Classrooms

  • Karen Perry Karen Perry

    My name is Mrs. Karen Perry and I am so excited to meet my new 5th grade students.

    This will be my 13th year of teaching at Buder and 27th year of teaching.

    I have a husband and 2 daughters, Molly is starting 6th grade and Lucy is starting 4th grade.  We have 2 crazy dogs, 2 goofy hamsters and a few fish.  

    In my spare time, I love to read (alone and with my girls), work on craft projects and watch St. Louis Blues hockey.

    Although this year is bringing along some challenges, we will face them together and achieve great things!

    I am super excited to teach fifth grade this school year.  Prior to my time at Buder, I spent 5 years teaching Math/ELA/Social Studies in 6th grade at Hoech Middle School.  This is a second career for me, and I am so glad to have made the change to education.  On the weekend you can find me either reading in my hammock or riding my motorcycle. I do not have any children, however I have a cat and a new kitten at home that keep me company. I am ready for a brand new school year where we will ALL be learning new things.
