What a blessing it is to be in Clinton, MO, and to be teaching at Clinton Christian Academy! My name is Karen Patterson. I love teaching young children. It is always exciting to watch the light bulbs go off as little ones learn new subjects. I especially like to teach language arts and enjoy watching children grow to love worshipping God through Bible learning, praising Him with song, and listening to their sincere prayers. I have taught since graduating California Baptist University in Riverside, California, in 1976. I completed work for my Master’s at Grand Canyon University, in 2012.
I love spending time with my husband, our small dog, Taffy, loved ones, and friends. Our sons, Joshua and Jacob, are happily married and live in California and Washington. We have one beautiful eleven year old granddaughter, June.
