The Title I Staff

Welcome to Title I

Karen E. Joslin,NBCT
Title I Teacher

I graduated from Catawba College in 1990 with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Theatre Arts. Following my graduation I began teaching 5th grade in the Rowan Salisbury School System. I became a Title I Reading Specialist in 1992 and have taught reading in several schools over the past 27 years. I have also taught 3 years in the regular classroom and spent 2 years as a Technology Specialist. I joined the Haw Creek family when the school qualified for federal funds in 2006. I have State Certification in Elementary Education and Reading with a National Board Certification in Literacy.

I graduated from the University of Akron with a Bachelors of Science degree in nursing and am also a RN.  A few years ago I made a career change and began working at Bell Elementary School as a classroom assistant.  I am excited about joining the Haw Creek Title I Staff and look forward to working with your children.
