My name is Trish Karn.  Ironically, although I grew up in Jemison, I live and teach in Clanton and my husband, who grew up in Clanton, teaches in Jemison.  We have 2 children, Dustin and Didi, and a wonderful son-in-law, Andrew.   We also have 3 grandkids that we think truly are grand!!  Lillian, our 7 year old princess, loves everything girly, but also enjoys playing soccer and is excelling in school.  AJ, our 5 year old cutie, loves LEGOS and amazes us with his ability to take apart and put back together all kinds of LEGOS, and then there is 2 year old Barrett who is getting into everything, strong-willed, and trying to find his niche, but he gives the best hugs and makes the cutest faces which make him adorable! 

My husband and I are active in our church, Clanton First Baptist, and have been blessed to be able to share Jesus all around the world including, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Zambia, in addition to many places in the U.S.  We love to travel!  We spent 2 weeks during the summer of 2018 in Italy as a belated 35th wedding anniversary trip.  This summer we traveled to Spain visiting several coastal cities, including Barcelona. 
We have a mission trip to Zambia, Africa planned for next summer and are working on other adventures. 

As passionate as I am about traveling and sharing Jesus with the children in Africa, I am just as passionate in the classroom.  I have high expectations for my students and myself.  I'm excited each year to get a new group in my class to work with!
