Welcome to Mrs. Karen Bailey's classroom!
My name is Karen Bailey and I am the K-5 Special Education teacher at Fordyce Elementary. I have been a teacher at FES for 14 years and this will be my 22 year in education. I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a Masters in Special Education. I also am a National Board Certified Teacher. I enjoy working with elementary school age children and maximizing each students educational potential.
My husband David and I have been married for 26 years and we are both Fordyce Alumni! We LOVE the REDBUGS! We have two children. Our daughter Jennifer is a Kindergarten teacher. She is married to Dustin Sanders and they live in Sheridan. Our son Justin recently married Sarah Childress and they reside in Dumas. He is currently in Graduate school at the U of A and Is studying plant pathology.
