Mrs. Shawna Karl

My classes are practical arts in the area of FCS (Family Consumer Sciences)  It was previously known as Home Economics.    I teach Catering I  and Catering II/ProStart.  My classroom is in C-109.  My day starts at 7:30 AM for teacher work time, then with students beginning at 8:30 AM and ends at 4:32  PM.  This year I am teaching 4 courses of Catering I  and 1 of Catering II/ProStart.    
As a parent, you may join my Google Classroom with your student.  I keep most information on my Google Classroom pages for my students.  It will show current work that students are doing and when they are due.  Email me your request at
Prior to teaching at PVHS, I substituted in Montana, Washington & Idaho.  I taught Preschool in Washington State as well.  While in Maryland, I taught Middle School FCS.   I began my career with School District 27J as a long-term substitute at Thimmig Elementary 2002-2003.  In 2003 I became a member of the Brighton High School staff and remained there until transferring to PVHS in 2010.  While at BHS I taught, Catering, Life Management, Relationships, Nutrition & Wellness & Teen Choices.  
I am also the FCCLA Adviser (Family, Career & Community Leaders of America) her at PVHS.  This organization is primarily a service oriented organization.  All levels of high school students are welcome to join.  Some of you may remember this as FHA.  Watch the PVHS website for more details. 
Part of my extra-curricular activities include running the clock at the Varsity Men & Women's home soccer games, as well as, keeping statistics for our Wrestling team.   Both of my sons graduated from PVHS, so my husband & I are very supportive of these extra curricular activities!
I have my Bachelor of Science degree from Ft. Hays State University in Hays, Kansas along with a Vocational Education Certification.  I have taken additional courses at several other universities and colleges, depending on where we were living.  
I enjoy getting to know our students here at PVHS.  I strive to guide them in making strong life advancing choices.  I feel this course of Catering and all of the Family & Consumer Sciences courses have essential everyday learning tools as part of the curriculum.
