•  Mrs. Karner's First Grade Website!  
           Welcome to first grade! I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our classroom and tell you a little bit about myself. I am very excited to be teaching here at Westfield! I truly enjoy teaching first grade because the kids make a great deal of growth in a year's time. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Western Illinois University in 2009 and earned my Masters in reading. I  live in Winthrop Harbor with my husband Matthew and our adorable son, Jameson. In my free time, I coach baton with the Razzle Dazzles twirling team. I believe that open communication between a child's home and school is very important for a student's success. Please feel free to contact me any time you have a question or concern. The best way to contact me is via email at kkarner@whsd1.org. I am confident that this will be a wonderful school year, and I look forward to building a fantastic relationship with your child.
