"I like to tell my students, ‘Yes, you’re studying for this test, but what you’re learning, you will use for the rest of your life, no matter what job you do’. Knowing how to read, write and speak well is something that everyone needs, and not just to pass a test."
Karol first joined the Capstone team as a parent then as test prep instructor in 2018, and she continues to lead test prep courses as well as work individually with students as a tutor and an essay consultant. Karol, who also works as a Humanities instructor for Christian Heritage Classical School in Longview, was drawn to Capstone because she enjoys working with teenagers as they learn who they are and what they want to be. Her goal is to help students not just improve academically, but to gain confidence from their successes.
Karol earned her bachelor’s degree in education from Abilene Christian University, and has taught advanced English courses at several schools in the Private and public school sector.
