Mrs. Karen McElhaney

As a teacher, I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education.  It is my belief that every child should be valued and treated with respect.  An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world.  

My husband, Ken and I live in Macedonia, Alabama. Some of you are thinking that's quite a drive to Pisgah, but I would drive much further to teach at Pisgah.  It is an honor to work with Pisgah teaching staff and support staff as well as teach the children of Pisgah, Alabama.  During the summer I spend my free-time gardening, walk/running, working in our flowers and playing with my grandchildren; Olivia, age two, Slade, age two Emory, age four and Kage, almost age eight.  My blessings are my two children, Josh and Kerri.  Another sweet blessing is my daughter-in-law, Christa Dann Haynes, who is also a Pisgah graduate.  

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child's education!  GO EAGLES!!
