Darnaby Elementary – Karen Sullivan, music

Music teacher Karen Sullivan has been named Teacher of the Year at Darnaby Elementary School.

“The reason I became a teacher centers around my passion, which is music,” Sullivan said. “I am in touch with the joy and emotions music has brought into my life. It is my desire to help children tap into their self-expression through music.”

Sullivan began teaching at Union in August 2017, all at Darnaby.

“Although things may look and feel differently when teaching during a pandemic, the reason WHY we teach is the one thing that has remained consistent,” Sullivan said. “After being apart through distance learning last year, it is apparent this year how much all of the students and I value our learning time together in person.”
