Welcome to our Classroom Website
    I am Karen Hartung, and I have been the Music Specialist at Mississippi Elementary School for over 15 years. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Vocal and Instrumental Music Education and a Master of Arts in Music Education, in addition to numerous courses in Orff, Kodaly, Education Through Music, and Dalcroze music methods. I have been certified as an ENVoY practitioner. 
    Beginning with grade one, I will be conducting a yearly concert which demonstrates concepts and skills the students have authentically learned in music class.  In 2018-2019, grades one, two, three, and four will have concerts.
    Being at Mississippi on a consistent basis enables me to deliver the curriculum well and sequentially, and I also to get to know the students as they grow and learn from Kindergarten through grade-five. I value that.

    My two daughters are the light of my life. Claire, age 14, attends Coon Rapids High School, and Carrie, age 12, attends Coon Rapids Middle School. We also have two Shih Tzu puppies named Lucky and Daisy.  They are so fun to play with!  Our family loves to swim, sing, play piano, read, walk, bike, and garden.  I especially love to plant and watch flowers grow.
