Karen Lynn Batson Moyd is a 36+ year experienced educator. She is certified to teach in South Carolina and North Carolina both in all Math and all Science 6th through 12th grade, highly qualified, techno certified, and Teacher Cadet certified.  Karen has taught a plethora of courses from middle school math and science to high school math and science and  ED1210 via North Greenville University.  Being dual certified certainly has opened many addition opportunities. 

Writing curriculum is a favorite of Karen’s as she has written and published both a marine science activity book (2009) and was one of nine writers of the newest edition of the Teacher Cadet textbook published in 2016.  She loves to be creative in lesson planning and being collaborative with team members.  She is a retired teacher from SC after 36 years teaching both math and science and is now extremely ExCiTEd to be teaching in Buncombe County School district at Clyde A. Erwin high School Math 1 and Math 2 with a dynamic group of math educators.

Mrs. and Mr. Moyd are the proud parents of Olivia Drew, a graduate of USC Upstate for her BS and Converse for her Master's degree and also acquired her Associates Degree in Veterinarian Technical Assisting.  Drew teaches Anatomy and Physiology at Boiling Springs High School in Spartanburg SC and works part-time at Banfield as a certified vet tech.  Karen's son, Drake Eugene-Jackson, is a graduate from Clemson in Mechanical Engineering with a BS and currently works by contract in his own construction business.  Karen also loves her four cats: Katy, Zeeky, Domino, and Roxy (and her many grand animals including a horse)!

Karen graduated from Clemson University in 1981 with a BS in Science Teaching.  She acquired her MAT from Furman in less that 2 years 2004-2005 while working full time and being a mom/wife.

When free time is available, she enjoys kayaking flat water, paddle boarding, hiking to waterfalls, fishing, shell jewelry designing, tie dying, plant propagating, and anything beach/lake/water.  She generally travels with the SCDNR once a summer out to sea researching for the Federal government helping to gather data which eventually produces the fish limitations for the open seasons on the East Coast.  Still red snapper cannot be caught and kept along the Eastern coast. She also loves to cut grass and make flower beds in her yard during the summer.

Teaching is her passion!  Helping students discover their niche is her goal!
