A series of new faculty members this year at Foothill High School.

Karen Brizendine is an educational specialist at Foothill High School, teaching English language to all four levels: freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors. She also teaches a special education class.

She’s wanted to teach since she was young, and had helped her younger sister to learn.

“Teaching my younger sister with Down Syndrome how to read was one of the most satisfying teaching experiences of my life,” Brizendine said. This led to her love in helping both regular students and in special education succeed in life.

Brizendine studied at American River College in the alumni program and Sac State for her B.A. and teacher’s credentials. This is her first year working at FHS and she is new to the Twin Rivers district.

She enjoys the atmosphere at FHS as well as the students she interacts with. She inferred that working here was better than working at her previous district.

Brizendine likes to read in her spare time.

When asked what she would do if she wasn’t a teacher, she responded:

“I have wanted to teach since I was eight years old, but if I could no longer teach, I would be an author.”
