Mrs. Karen Francesco, 6th Grade Teacher


My name is Mrs. Francesco, and I have been very fortunate to have been in various teaching roles here at Crawford for a total of 20 years.  This is my 17th year as a sixth-grade classroom teacher.   Although my husband and I are both originally from Hawaii, this beautiful state has been our home for 28 years. I am familiar with military life as my husband retired from the Air Force in 2005 here at Eielson.   I also understand the challenges of parenting because I have two adult daughters and a ten-year old granddaughter.   Another special member of my family is my cuddle bug, Sophie, a toy American Eskimo.  Some of my favorite things that I enjoy, besides teaching, include being out in nature, sightseeing, viewing wildlife, cooking, and spending time with my family.
