I am Karen Bombardier, the second grade teacher here at Penryn. I received my undergraduate degree in Theatre Arts from CSU Fullerton. After graduation, I toured the U.S. teaching theatre through Missoula Children's Theatre and taught dance classes here in Sacramento. I spent some time in the world of management before receiving my credential and Masters in Teaching from William Jessup University. I started my teaching career at a small Catholic school in West Sacramento. I have worn many hats in education such as TK/K aid, PE and Performing Arts teacher, first and third grade teacher. In 2018 I joined the Penryn family. I love the creativity and learning that happens in second grade. Penryn is a fantastic community and a great school to be a part of!
