Karen Wells - Arkansas
I have been the library media specialist, journalism instructor, and AP English teacher for the Midland School District for the past 36 years. I am a National Board Certified Teacher, the current past president of the Arkansas Association of Instructional Media, a STAR Discovery Educator, and a member of Discovery Education's Leadership Council. I am also a member of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology, the American Library Association, and ISTE. I have been selected to attend the DEN Summer Institutes for the past seven years and am convinced the DEN is the main reason I am still in love with my career choice. I enjoy spending time with my granddaughter, attending Razorback games with my family, and traveling around the world with Midland's Student Adventure travel group. If you've got a minute or two, ask me about my new grandson who is set to arrive in September!
