Meet Mrs. Hagen: 
My name is Kari Hagen and I am extremely excited to be an Art Teacher at Creek Valley Elementary! 
I am returning to Edina, where I previously taught art at Concord for two years.  For the past ten years, I have enjoyed teaching experiences with elementary and middle school grade levels, most recently in the Richfield and Robbinsdale Districts.  I graduated from St. Olaf College with a Studio Art degree in 1998 and later went to the University of Minnesota to receive my teaching license and Masters in K-12 Art Education. 
At home in New Hope, my husband Eric and I enjoy our hilarious and energetic 6 year old son, Leif, our curious and smiley 4 year old daughter, Annika and our overexcited but lovable dog, Willow.
As the year progresses, I plan to upload samples of curriculum and assessment materials as well as photos of student artwork.  Artsonia.com is also a wonderful way to see student art work (and raise money for the art department)!  Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. 
I look forward to creating art with the students of Creek Valley Elementary this school year!
