Gifted faculty are a key to any program. The faculty in the School of Teacher Education at IWU are a vibrant and progressive community of instructors who bring a richness and depth of academic and professional experience to their students and believe in the importance of relationship-based teaching.

The professor/student contact does not end when the class period is over. Mentoring and individual relationships have impacted many of our students' lives throughout their tenure at the University.

Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” – 1 Corinthians 15:58

Karla Karr serves as Assistant Professor of Education in the School of Teacher Education at Indiana Wesleyan University. God has so graciously provided for her diverse opportunities during her 14 years as an educator in Virginia's public schools. Professor Karr has worked in some capacity with all grade levels PK–8 as a general classroom educator, Title I teacher, and as an instructional technology resource teacher. She hopes to convey to her students her passion for Christ and how He can work through every facet of your life including your vocation.

Professor Karr's desire is that God would continue to use her in her current role to impact the lives of preservice teachers, teachers within the community, and the lives of children who will someday have the great fortune of having a Christian teacher.
