I have taught at the 4 year old level 2 different years and at this is my second year to teach at the 2 year old level. I absolutely love working with children, no matter what the age. I feel so blessed to be able to work in a field that I love and doubly blessed to work where I choose here at Grace Episcopal Preschool.

Ms. Karrie Muñoz
Three-Day Twos

My name is Karrie Muñoz.  I am the 3 day two year old teacher here at Grace Episcopal Preschool.  I live in Georgetown with my husband, Michael and my son, Joseph who is 14 years old and an 8th grader at Benold Middle School.  Michael and I have been married 7+ years.  He brought into my life three bonus daughters, Kelley, Michelle and Emily.  Emily is 12 and a 7th grader at Benold Middle school.  Kelley and her husband Justin are the parents of our precious grandbaby, Audree Grace; she’s one….and spoiled.  All of us are either graduates of, or students of Georgetown ISD.

I have been in a teaching environment for the better part of 10 years.  I began at the middle school level and moved on the 9th grade for eight years.  I decided to “quit work” the year before last and focus on the business that Michael and I started four years ago.  That’s when my friend, Mrs. Neitsch, introduced me to GEP.  I would become the teacher for 3-day-2s…for “just” three days.  I have enjoyed my experience at GEP and have been truly blessed.  The little ones are so full of spirit and eager to learn and love. I believe that God has a distinct purpose for every child’s life before their feet ever hit the ground.  I am honored that He has found a place for me to be a Gardener of Growth and plant the seed for a life of learning, love and spiritual development.  As their first real teacher, I know how important it is to provide a fun and safe learning experience.  Feel free to drop in and play with us.
