Welcome to Mrs. Manuel's Class Webpage!




Hi there, Mrs. Karen Walter Manuel here!  This is my favorite picture of my family taken at Surf City on Topsail Island, NC, 2015.   My husband John and I have been married for 10 years and been together over 13 years.  We have three beautiful, brilliant children, the oldest is Cooper, he is 9 years old, Eli is 6, and the youngest is Beatrice, and she is 5 years old! 

This is my 17th year teaching school.   I have taught many different grades levels over the years… 7th, 5th, 6th, 2nd, 4th, 2nd, and 1st.  My favorite subject to teach is Mathematics!  I am a product of the Catawba County Schools as I went to elementary school at Webb A. Murray Elementary School, then to Arndt Middle School, and graduated from St. Stephens High School in 1995.  I continued my education at Western Carolina University and graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Middle School Mathematics. 

My mother and Grandmother are my inspiration, as they were both wonderful teachers!  My mother taught school for over 38 years!  She still substitutes, because she loves the students as much as I do!

I look forward to working with you and your children this school year!
