Mrs. Karen Keyes

Hello everyone! I am beginning my 22nd year of teaching. I graduated from Delta State University in 2000 and began teaching fifth grade at H. M. Nailor. My family and I moved to the New Orleans area in 2003 for 15 years. While there, I taught every grade from K-4th. We moved back to Cleveland in 2018, and I taught first grade at Pearman. I transferered to Nailor in 2019 where I taught kindergarten for two years. I am so excited to be teaching first grade this school year!
I completed my Master's of Elementary Education Degree at Delta State in 2012 and my Specialist Degree at Delta State in the summer of 2020.
I am married with 4 grown children and 2 grandsons. I love traveling, reading, and working jigsaw puzzles.
