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 10th year at WES and my 14th year of teaching!

I have been married for 27 years and have 3 children; Dalton is 22 and attends the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Clayton is 21 and attends Auburn University in Montgomery, and Hayden is 18 and will be attending Auburn University in Auburn this fall!  We live in the Wallsboro community and attend Thelma Baptist Church.  Most of my free time is spent visiting and spending time with my boys.
