Karen Killeen, Dean of Students
Karen is a certified teacher with a masters degree in Special and Inclusive Education and has worked in the field of education since 1994, most recently at YCIS.
At Hyde Academy, Karen will oversee the health and well-being of our students through in-class work, off-campus activities, and mentoring in addition to providing professional development for our teaching and administrative staff.
As a level 3 practitioner of the Forest School, an innovative education approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment, Karen will be incorporating Forest School programmes into the curriculum at Hyde Academy.
We are also thrilled to have her two young boys (future grade 3 and grade 6 students) who bring with them a love of learning and an appreciation for our school (after one visit, they fell in love!).
