My name is Karen Laborda and this is my 19th year teaching at Elder Grove School. All my years have been spent in the middle school and I absolutely love this age group! This year I am teaching 8th History, 7th grade Reading, Spanish I, and Spanish II.
I was born and raised in Butte, Montana, and have resided in Billings since 1987. I graduated from Montana State University-Billings with a B.S. degree in Elementary Education, a teaching minor in Spanish K-12, and a minor in Business Administration.
Thirty-three years ago I was blessed to marry my best friend, Pascual. Pascual is a Petroleum Engineer who retired from the Bureau of Land Management after 30 years of public service. He currently has his own consulting business, PRL Consulting LLC.
We have three grown children, three grandchildren, and two young Siamese cats who keep us plenty busy!
