Karen Orpe » Welcome



Hello! I am so excited for the 2018-2019 school year and I hope you are, too!  I have been a teacher in LAUSD for the last 18 years and I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade History, as well as Geography and New Media electives during my rewarding career.  In 2010, I was honored to be named an LAUSD Teacher of the Year.  I absolutely love teaching and helping my students become critical thinkers, lifelong learners, and thoughtful citizens.
