Welcome to Summit Academy! My name is Karen Fahy and I have been teaching young children for more than 25 years. After graduating from ASU with a BA in Elementary Education, I began teaching in Mesa Public Schools. I taught 4th, 5th, and 3rd grade for many years. While raising my family I taught part time for 13 years at Desert Sun Child Development Center as a Pre-Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten teacher. I found my passion for the early childhood years there!
My teaching philosophy matches Summit Academy's emphasis on the whole child and their character and social-emotional development. We will be using hands-on, developmentally appropriate experiences to master the kindergarten curriculum. I am looking forward to working with you this year to make it a wonderful kindergarten experience! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!
