From Mrs. Karnes:
Thank you so much for checking out our website!  It is always a work
in progress, so if there are any problems with links, please let me
know.  I want to tell you a little bit about myself!  I was born and
raised in West Frankfort and have lived here most of my life.  I am a
TRUE REDBIRD and proud of it!!  Before becoming a teacher, I
worked as a makeup artist at the Lancome counter at Dillards, sold
jewelry, clothing, and shoes at a small store named Hecht's, and was
a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines.  I feel very grateful to be
a Technology Teacher at Frankfort Intermediate School. I have
degrees in Communication Disorders, Special Education and
Elementary Education.  I also have a Master's Degree in Educational
Administration. I love my job!  
I am married to Jarrod Karnes, who is also a teacher in
Murphysboro.  We have five (yes, FIVE!) children: Jackson, Maxon,
Karis, Maddox and Mace. In my free time, I like to read, paint, plant
flowers, and make things look pretty.   
Jackson, and Maddox.
My husband Jarrod and I.
