About Me



My name is Kara Hopkins and I love teaching here at Towne Meadow Elementary.  It's great being a Coyote and can't wait to begin my 13th year of teaching.  This will be my 11th year in Kindergarten. I truly enjoy teaching Kindergarten and can't wait to have a wonderful year full of fun and learning!

I moved to the Carmel area in June of 2014 from Evansville, where I was born and raised. I graduated from the University of Southern Indiana with a degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree from Indiana University in Early Childhood Education.

My husband Zach and I have three daughters, a third grader and twins who are 3. I love to spend time with my family, being outside, going shopping, and cheering on the Colts!

Here are some of my favorite things...I wonder if any of my students enjoy these favorites as well?

* Color: red

* Food: spaghetti

* Candy: cinnamon bears

* Sport: football-Go Colts!

* Drink: sweet tea and Mt. Dew

* Book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

* I love to dance, sing, and listen to music. I enjoy Maroon 5 and Train.

 I am so excited about the 2016-2017 school year. I know it will be wonderful!
