• Hi!  My name is Karen Maples and I am the Challenge Lab teacher at Colt Elmenetary.  I teach the 1st through 5th grade Gifted and Talented classes as well as the enrichment classes for Kindergarten through 5th grade.  I absolutely love teaching!

    I grew up in Dallas and attended Texas A&M University.  I love living in the Texas Hill Country, but especially love Marble Falls!  I have one daughter, Maddie, and she is currently a freshman at Texas A&M.  Gig 'em Ags!  

    My favorite hobbies are painting and reading, and driving to College Station to visit Maddie.  

    I'm excited about this school year and can't wait to see my students again.
