Karla Keller has been an educator at Judge Memorial’s beginning in 1989. She teaches classes in health and physical education. Additionally, she moderates the Interact club and assists the athletic department with running the time-clock, music, scoreboard, and score books for home athletic competitions.
Always willing to offer assistance to support her colleagues, Ms. Keller will take on new challenges and lend support wherever needed. "Judge Memorial feels more like a family than it does a career. We are all in this learning environment together with the goal to be the best you can be while lifting others around us up." While in high school, Ms. Keller's high school Health Careers Exploration teacher motivated her to consider working and teaching in a medical-related field of study.
In her classroom and in the activities she moderates, Ms. Keller reinvents the traditional and explores new educational methods providing a broader experience for her students. Filled with special guests, hands-on activities, workshops, and more, Ms. Keller's classroom is one filled with energy and inquiry. She initiates discussion on tough issues, encouraging students to get involved to create change, while remaining constant and true to their beliefs and values.
