Hello PHMS Parents, Guardians and Students in 7th Grade Science!


My name is Karen Giesler and this is my 12th year teaching science.  I attended Colorado State University and have received two Bachelors in Science degrees in Equine Science and Cellular Biology.  I also have my Masters degree Education.  I have taught a variety of subjects to 7-12 grade students including 7th grade Life Science, Pre-AP Biology, Biology, Cellular Biology and Biotechnology.  I have also previously coached cross country and track for the previous 10 years.  My hobbies outside of school include running, reading, watching movies, and trying new restaurants.


This is my first year at Prairie Heights Middle School and I really enjoy it here!  I teach 7th Grade Integrated Sciences and enjoy the variety of content that students get to explore within the class.  In class, students work collaboratively on a variety of relevant subjects including Geology, Natural Hazards, Chemical Reactions, Problem Solving Plastics, Microworld and My Ecosystem.  All of these projects allow students to develop inquiry skills at their own pace and build upon their ideas.


Feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions.  


Stay curious!
