Julius R. Scruggs
Child Development Center & Academy
Hello, my name is Karen Howard. I received Jesus as Lord and Savior of my life at the tender age of six years old. I grew up in a Christian household. We always attended church and participated in church activities. I am so excited about teaching in a Christian school. I am ecstatic about the fact that I can share Christ with my students. I have a particularly important job because I get to help them establish a foundation in Jesus for their lives. I am originally from North Carolina. I meet my husband at a HBCU, Winston-Salem State University. We got married while still attending school, afterwards, my husband joined the Army. We had two sons. We went on to spend twenty-eight years traveling within and outside of the United States. I have taught in eleven different school systems and one in Germany.
I have a Master’s degree in Education. I have been working in the field of education for thirty years. God has so richly blessed my career. I have held several positions: teacher, Training & Curriculum Specialist, School-Age- Services Coordinator, Youth & Teen Director, Child Development Director, Interventionist, and reading coach.
I am looking forward to a great year! It is my honor and privilege to be apart of your scholar’s lives. I have great plans for my students. There are so many great things I plan to accomplish this year.
