Hello! My name is Karen Hassinger and I am the art specialist at Rosa Lee Carter. I am excited to be teaching for a sixth year at such a wonderful school! I have a bachelor's degree in Studio Art from the University of Mary Washington. I have taught in many states: Florida, Virginia, Texas and Hawaii. I have also taught in Bermuda as well as for DODS in Germany. Before teaching in Loudoun County, I taught middle school and elementary school in Prince William County for 6 years. After transferring to Loudoun County, I taught at Little River ES in South Riding for three years. I then transferred to RLC.
I am the mother of four boys. My oldest, who has a degree in information systems, splits his time between here and China. My second son, a graduate of Tech, lives and works outside of D.C. He also attends law school at George Mason. My third son finished college and is working in the computer tech field, and my fourth is in school. We live in Leesburg with our cat Bubblegum and our dog Bailey, and enjoy it very much!
I am looking forward to another terrific year at Rosa Lee Carter!
