My name is Karen Nunes and I am the EL teacher for Plainville Public Schools. This is my 14th year teaching and my 4th year teaching ESL in Plainville. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Rhode Island College in 2008 and my Masters Degree in Teaching ESL from Framingham State University in 2012. I work within the classroom co-teaching in some grade levels while pulling out small groups for other grade levels or pushing in as a center.
I live in Cumberland, RI with my husband and two sons and have loved working in Plainville. I am first generation Portuguese-American and I was raised speaking Portuguese at home. This helps me understand my students in a very special way. I look forward to watching our students grow in Plainville.
