About Ms. Coon


My name is Karen Coon.  I have been teaching kindergarten at Kamehameha Schools Hawaii since 1996.  I have a high interest in teaching young children reading and writing skills.  I have worked with the Hawaii Island Reading Council and have run workshops for educators in balanced literacy instruction for preschool and lower elementary grade teachers.  I believe in interactive learning structures and try to give my students opportunities to recreate learning topics through art, drama and writing.

Outside of school I can be found jogging, swimming, whale watching and enjoying our beautiful ‘aina!
