My Bio

My name is Karen Satterwhite and I am the Marketing and Entrepreneurship teacher here at Jordan High School.  I have been teaching for fourteen years, eleven at Jordan High School after a 26-year career in Human Resources.

I graduated  Summa Cum Laude from the University of Phoenix, Arizona where I received a BS in Business Administration.  I received my teaching certification from NC State with a BS in Business & Marketing Education.

I am married to a school teacher, Steve, who has retired from teaching after 42 years.  He was the Architectural Drafting & Engineering Instructor at Chapel Hill High School for the past 23 years. Prior to Chapel Hill he taught at Apex High School. We have one child, Stephanie, who is a graduate from NC State where she studied Criminology/Forensics. She graduated Summa Cum Laude and is working for the Ohio State Government as a Disability Fraud Analyst. We have lots of pets including a deer, squirrels, bunnies, and birds that like to eat on our peach and apple trees, not to mention roses, Hosta plants, etc.

For fun I like to read, put together jigsaw puzzles, swim, walk, and just being with family and friends.

I have enjoyed teaching such a diverse group of students.  My compassion for students' success is displayed by motivation, respect, and rewards.
