Hello! My name is Mrs. Karyn Beard and I have been an educator for the past seventeen years with Rutherford County Schools. This is my second year at OMS and I absolutely love teaching here! My passion is teaching science and I am thrilled to be a faculty member at Oakland MiddIe School! I graduated from MTSU with a bachelors degree in special education and I have a masters degree in life science from Western Governor's University. I look forward to a great year working with a great student body and staff! If you would like to email me please feel free to do so anytime.
