Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Karen Rigsby (Chemistry, Physical Science)
This is my second year teaching, and I am so excited to share my love of all things science. I have a chemistry degree from Georgia Tech and worked as a professional chemist for over 20 years. I spent four years with the GBI State Crime Lab and sixteen years in private industry. During my industry career, I earned a patent, published numerous articles related to my field, worked with government agencies such as CDC and EPA, taught classes and managed a research and development group. I am excited to have made the transition into education. I had so many great teachers and mentors that helped shape my own education and career. I look forward to doing the same for my students.
My husband and I live in Woodstock and have two sons. Our oldest is starting his freshman year at The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) and our youngest is starting 4th grade.
I am very happy to be part of the Cartersville family and am looking forward to sharing my experience and helping my students achieve their goals.
