Mrs. Karen Harkness

I began teaching at Romeoville High School in August, 2002.  Throughout this time, I have taught Algebra and Geometry.  I also work as a ticket taker at football and basketball games.  

Prior to teaching, I graduated from Lyons Township High School, located in LaGrange, Illinois.  Upon graduation, I attended Illinois State University where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Mathematics Education.  I continued my education and enrolled at Northern Illinois University where I earned my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  

I have been married since 2007.  My husband and I have a daughter who was born in 2016.  

My husband and I participate in the Hustle up the Hancock every February.  This event raises money for the Respiratory Health Association.  We also participate in the Avon 39: The Walk to End Breast Cancer every June.
