My name is Karen Westbrook and I am the Media Specialist at Dawson County Middle School.  I am currently in my 10th year in the education field. I graduated from Gainesville State College (NGCSU) with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education and then from Brenau University with a Masters of Education Degree. I am currently working toward a Specialist Degree at Valdosta State University in Instructional Technology with media certification. I received my gifted endorsement in 2016.  I have taught Special education, ESOL, reading and gifted education. This is my first year as the media specialist at DCMS. 

 

My husband Brian and I have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. We are both from Dawson County and we love our small community. I am proud to be the parent of three Dawson County Alumni!  When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my family.  We love the outdoors and spend as much time there as we can.  We spend most of our summer fishing and I also love to read.  I could spend hours reading a good book. I have several favorite authors including, J.K Rowling, Ronald Dahl, and Veronica Roth. I look forward to sharing my love of reading with the students at DCMS. It's great to be a TIGER!
