• Welcome! My name is Karen Brindle and I am an Exceptional Children's teacher here at Jamestown Elementary. I currently serve students in grades 3-5. I moved to North Carolina 3 years ago from Florida. I have a Master's Degree in Exceptional Children's Education for grades K-12 from the University of South Florida. I am certified in General Education for grades K-6, and have endorsements for ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) and Reading K-12. I am currently pursuing my National Board Certification for Professional Teaching Standards.
