My name is Karen Sartori and I am eager to begin my ninth 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 four beautiful daughters.  My oldest daughter, Nikenzie, is now a fifth grader. She can't wait to continue her learning adventure this year. My second daughter, Natalia, will be six years old in October. She is learning the kindergarten way of life at MVCKS.  I have a two year old and a 5 month old as well.   My husband Nick is a school counselor at Harrison School as well as the 7th grade football coach.  He also is a part-time real estate angent with Keller Williams. To say that we are a busy family is quite an understatement but we wouldn't have it any other way. 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.
