Kara Stevens

Welcome! I look forward to seeing my students in the 2021-22 school year! The tentative plan is for my sophomores to have my English class in the fall and the freshmen in the spring. #obpride

About the Teacher

Education
I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor's degree in English Education  from The University of Mississippi (Go Rebs!); I have certification in Gifted Education, and I have also formerly taught Advanced Placement English Language and Composition and Spotlight in Desoto County Schools.. 

Bio
I have lived in DeSoto County my whole life, and I am proud to call it my home. It is a blessing that I get to teach in such a wonderful community. Some of my former teachers at OBMS and OBHS are who inspired me to become a teacher myself; I have been called to this job profession, and it is my hope that I can inspire my students as well to pursue their passion for a particular career. I attended school for a few years at Sacred Heart and then spent the majority of my school years at Olive Branch where I graduated. 
I've been married for seven years and love everything about my nerdy husband Andy. In my spare time (which is very little), I am usually found taking my corgi GUS on his daily walk, visiting with my family on their goat farm, reading from my endless stack of books, strolling through a local art festival, or watching sports (all kinds). I currently attend Fellowship Memphis, where I enjoy fellowship and worship with fellow believers.
