• Hello, and welcome to 5th Grade! My name is Ms. Karam. This is my fifth year teaching at Sumner Elementary. Prior to teaching at Sumner, I taught as th Math Specialist at Newcomers School for a year, for eight years I taught 4th Grade at a private Christian school, and I also taught English in Japan for almost two years. I earned my Master degree in Teaching Elementary School from Liberty University. I believe that education is vital to each child's social, intellectual, and emotional development. A good education can open doors to a bright future - which is my wish for each child on my classroom.
