Mrs. Karen Rouse

Hello Everyone!

My name is Karen Rouse. I am the newest 2nd Grade teacher at B.F. Grady. I am married with three grown children, all of whom attended BFG. Prior to teaching at BFG, I was the Director of Woodland Preschool and Childcare for nearly 14 years and I worked with the Division of Social Services for nearly 10 years.  I received an AAS degree in Marketing/Business from Lenoir Community College and a BS degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Mount Olive. I currently have a K-6 Residency License.   

I am very excited to be teaching at B.F. Grady and I am looking forward to an awesome year. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 252-560-0380 or at
