Mrs. Karen Cole
First Grade Teacher

Welcome to 1st grade!
My name is Karen Cole and welcome to my favorite grade to teach! I have taught first and second grade. I have been an assistant prior to that and have been employed by Buncombe County for 17 years. I have a Master's in Elementary Education and believe that learning is a life-long journey. I am married to my husband, Jeff. He is a respiratory therapist and a volunteer firefighter.  We have two grown sons,  and a golden retriever Chloe. In my spare time I like to read, travel, study history and most of all spend time with family and friends.
At Haw Creek I serve as the co-chair of the PBIS committee and am on the team who supports teachers with academic interventions. I am excited about this year and if you ever have any questions or concerns please email me at
