Ms. Karen D. Adamson
Hello, my name is Karen Adamson. Born and raised in Fayetteville, NC, I am the daughter of a career military NCO and a medical professional. I am a graduate of Westover High School and Fayetteville State University where I received my Bachelors in English in 2003. I am the youngest of three siblings, who are also college graduates. Three of us have attained graduate degrees. I am also the parent of four children, and the grandmother of four. I have been an educator for about 27 years, first beginning as a substitute teacher, then a Kindergarten paraprofessional in Columbs, GA and finally an English teacher. I taught three years at Westover High School, seven at Westover Middle, and three years at STAR Academy. I also took a three year hiatus and worked as a Qualified Mental Health Professional for private company. Over the years, I have taught many subjects, Reading, Creative Writing, English 1,2,3, and 4, Journalism, French, Spanish, Biology, and Physical Science. I was also fortunate to coach girls soccer,men and women's track, cheerleading and Forensics. I am an avid reader and lover of music and poetry. I am also a Spoken Word artist. I truly enjoy teaching and I look forward to continuing to serve the students of Harnett County.
