Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Karin Hallam
Having attended the Rochester City School District, Mrs. Hallam is very familiar with the population. She attended schools: #6, #30, Frederick Douglass, and graduated from Franklin High School, where she currently teaches first grade!
In her spare time, she enjoys family, traveling, reading, writing, great movies, and baking. Favorite things to bake for her family include: strawberry cheesecake, poundcakes, and pumpkin nut rolls.
She loves teaching first grade and remarks, "First grade is where one can observe noticeable physical, mental, and academic growth. Many students enter as non-readers and writers, and by year's end, one sees vast improvements. I feel like I'm watching my babies take their first steps and sometimes there are tears. In the end, it is a good feeling having a hand in it all!"
