Mrs. Karen Giebink

Hello, my name is Karen Giebink and I am so excited to be a Silver Hawk!

I am a special education teacher here at The Tradtional Academy at Bellair.

I have taught students in every grade including kindergarten and high school and across general education and special education in all subjects over the last 18 years. I have loved the great breadth of experience and all the great experiences this has afforded me. I have been in the support and coaching role of Special Education Strategist in DVUSD since 2016.

One of my favorite titles outside of teaching is wife for 30+ years, mom and Mimi to my two grandchildren. Outside of school you may see me enjoying photography or still going down waterslides or through playplace tunnels.

I love working with students and am looking forward to the the supportive and involved "family" at our new Traditional Academy.
