Karen Evans

I am so happy to be a part of the Princeton community and elementary school.  I was here from 2008 - 2011, then moved to Wilson's Mills Elementary from 2011 until 2021. Then in January of 2022, I returned to Princeton to be a Bulldog!   I have worked with students from kindergarten to 5th grade.  Before getting married in 2008 and moving to Princeton, I lived and taught in Greenville (Go Pirates!) for 10 years.   So if you do the math, this is my 24th year teaching.

I have an amazing husband, Scott. And together we have one daughter, Jordan, who is with me at Princeton and in the 4th grade and a 5 year old Boykin Spaniel named Buster.

I am very excited to work with the staff and students of Princeton and help in any way I can.  The best way to reach me is through Class Dojo.
