Mrs. Karen Thornton

I am from the northeast - specifically Boston & Connecticut but moved to TX as soon as I realized such friendly people lived in Texas. I am married & have 2 sons, & 2 grandchildren - 7and 2 years old. I wanted to be in a profession where I worked with children & could make a difference in their lives. I have been a teacher, counselor, diagnostician, assistant principal & a principal for the past 26 years - 23 of those years at Waters Elementary. I love the Waters' students & parents & am always looking for new ways to improve our teaching. Nothing is more important than what we do to help children succeed! I hope every Patriot leaves Waters with a sense of pride in their school & know they are capable of anything!
