Dear Willard Families,

I hope you are all enjoying your summer.  I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself.  My name is Karen Despres.  I am the Lead Teacher here at Willard.  Although I am new to Willard, I have been working here in Berlin for the last 12 years at the middle school, as a School Counselor for 10 years and a Lead Teacher for two years.  I began my career in education as an elementary teacher and am happy to be back at the level in which I started.  I look forward to getting to know the Willard community and developing a partnership with families to ensure the best possible educational experience for your child(ren).  Please feel free to reach out to me anytime I can be of assistance.
