Hi!  I’m Karen McKnight, After 3 Coordinator for NBC Middle School and High School.  This is new position for me after teaching the last 31 years at the NB Elementary School.  I was a reading specialist the last 17 years and previously taught pre-K, first, fourth and third grades.

I enjoy spending time with the students at After3.  It’s great to help the students with their classes as well as doing fun activities to enrich their life experiences!  The students build friendships and learn new things all while having fun!
