Karen Kirby

This is my thirtieth year of teaching and my eighth year at Rawlinson.  I have taught in Michigan, Ohio, and Louisiana.  I am also an adjunct instructor at Palo Alto where I teach Remedial Writing and Freshman Comp I & II.  I have a Master’s in English from McNeese State University, my Teaching Certification from The University of Michigan/Dearborn, and my Bachelor’s in Literature from Olivet University.  In 2001, the Louisiana Colleges of Education named me their Teacher of the year and that same year I was one of twenty-six teachers selected from the nation to study Shakespeare at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington D.C. 

Monique Hall

I have been an educator for fifteen years.  This is my first year at Rawlinson.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California.  I earned my Master’s degree in Education (with an emphasis in Reading and Language Arts) from Texas State University.  I am an Air Force Wife (Retired), and I currently reside in Schertz, Texas.
