Karen Shepherd Staff Photo


My name is Karen Shepherd.  I graduated from Edgewood Academy in 1985 and received my BS in Business Adminstration in August of 1989 from Auburn University at Montgomery.  I spent the next 12 years working with my family in a family owned business.  In 2002, I returned to AUM to continue my education.  I received my Master of Education in December of 2004.

I began my career as a teacher at Wetumpka Intermediate School-now Wetumpka Middle School. I taught 4th grade at WMS for four years before fourth grade was moved to Wetumpka Elementary School.  I am now entering my 9th year at WES and my 13th year of teaching!

I have been married for 26 years and have 3 children; Dalton is 21 and attends the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Clayton is 20 and attends Central Alabama Community College in Alexander City, and Hayden is 17 and will be a Senior at Wetumpka High School this year!  We live in the Wallsboro community and attend Thelma Baptist Church.  Most of my free time is spent at the ballpark watching my boys play!  I enjoy attending WHS football games in the fall and WHS baseball games in the spring!
