Mrs. Karen Harper

Welcome to CVA!  I am so happy to have you here.  I am in my 17th year of teaching and am excited to be working in the Virtual Academy this year.  I graduated from Ohio University with a double major in English Literature and in Secondary English Education.  I received my Masters of Arts in English Literature from UNCC.  I am also a National Board Certified teacher.  

My husband, Jason, and I live in Union County with our two sons, Reid and Ian.  I have taught high school English for my entire career, and I love being a teacher.  In fact, I come from a family of educators: my father and older brother are both English teachers, and my mother worked in the school system as well.
