Kara Simon

I teach AV Production, Journalism I, Broadcast Journalism and am the adviser for The Red Ledger. I graduated from the University of Missouri (M-I-Z), where I received my undergraduate degree in journalism. I am currently finishing up my master’s in education at Southern Methodist University.


I am excited to start my first year at Lovejoy High School. Prior to teaching, I worked in the advertising and public relations industry. What ignited my passion for teaching was the opportunity to be an intern coordinator at the public relations firm. I was in charge of creating projects and mentoring young students, so they would learn and become interested in the ever-changing world of journalism.


In my free time, I enjoy spending time outside with my husband and Frenchie. I am also an avid runner, so you can find me at a new trail each weekend.


I look forward to working with your students!
