Mrs. Karen Padelford

Welcome to 1st Grade 2021-2022! I have enjoyed 22 years of teaching, including 8 years of Kindergarten/1st-3rd Reading Intervention, 7 years of PreK-8th Music Therapy, and 7 years of 1st-2nd grade.

On a personal note, my husband Brian and I have been married for 26 years. We have 4 children: Emma (19, Sophomore at GCU), Ava (16, Junior at Ridge), Jack (13, Terramar 8th grader), and Max (10, Terramar 5th grader). We have TWO new craaaazy puppies: Walter, a golden retriever and Frank, a maltipom.

I look forward to an amazing school year! :D
