My name is Karen Sartori and I am eager to begin my seventh year as the Mountain View Core Knowledge School Administrator.  I am a graduate of Canon City High School and I am proud to be working in a phenominal school district.  I attended college at the University of Northern Colorado where I earned a Bachelor of Art in Psychology.  While working for Child Advocacy of Greeley, I decided to go back to school for a teaching degree.  I went on to earn my Colorado Teacher License in Elementary Education at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs. My first teaching job brought me back home to teach middle school Language Arts at Fremont Middle School in Florence. During the five years I spent teaching middle school at FMS, I decided that I would like to go into school administration. I begin working on a Master of Science in Educational Leadership in 2005 and I accepted my current position in the Spring of 2007. Each year at MVCKS has brought a new adventure and I've enjoyed the journey.

On a personal note, I am married with three beautiful daughters.  My oldest daughter, Nikenzie, is now a third grader. She can't wait to continue her learning adventure this year . My second daughter, Natalia, will be four years old in October. She has started her 2nd year of preschool at MVCKS. My husband Nick is a school counselor at Harrison School as well as the 7th grade football coach. When I am not at work, I am spending quality time with my family.  We enjoy cooking, traveling, and just plain playing together!

Just as I want the best for my own children, I want the best for yours while they're with us at MVCKS. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I could answer any questions or assist in any way.
