Karen Mahoney

Union’s outstanding reputation, progressive education beliefs, combined with a commitment to academic excellence has been the perfect match for my professional growth as an educator and my personal growth as a learner. I hold two undergraduate degrees:  one in Psychology from Oklahoma State University and one in Elementary Education from Langston University-Tulsa.  In addition, I have a Masters of Education from the University of Oklahoma with an emphasis in Education Administration and Curriculum Supervision.  In 2008, I received my National Board Certification.  My years of teaching experience has enabled me to learn and utilize a variety of the best, researched-based practices in education.  I am a fifth grade teacher who believes that all children have gifts and abilities that can help them succeed, both academically and socially.   There’s no greater reward than to see a student’s face when they have realized they’ve learned something for the first time.  Those are the “aha” moments and smiles I love to see at Darnaby Elementary.   

My plan time is from 8:35 to 9:20 am on Monday through Thursday.  On Friday, my plan time is from 8:55 to 9:35 am..  Please feel free to contact me via the phone number listed below or use the link to send me an e-mail if you have questions or concerns.
