Karen Knight, M.Ed.

Hello students and parents. My name is Karen Knight, and I am the High School English teacher at the Opportunity Center. This is my first year teaching in Pascagoula-Gautier School District, so let me tell you a little about myself. 
I grew up in the Meridian area and attended USM where I received my Bachelor's degree in journalism with a minor in English. I worked as a reporter and photographer as well as several jobs at Silver Star Resort & Casino in Philadelphia, MS before becoming certified to teach. I have been teaching 6 - 12 grade English and reading for 16 years. 
I am the mother of a 21-year-old daughter, Aryn, and 3.5 year old son, Kyrian. I am also the grandmother of a 1-year-old granddaughter, Kayori. I live in Ocean Springs with my son and have been living there since 2012. 
I received my master's degree in Educational Leadership from Mississippi State University in 2012. If you have any questions or need to speak to me, please feel free to email me at any time or call the school to set up a conference.
