Teacher - 5th Grade
Phone: 210.479.1477


I'm Karen Shea, and I am  a 5th grade teacher at Concordia Lutheran School.

I am originally from Pennsylvania but moved to the Rio Grande Valley after college and lived there for more than thirty years. My family moved to San Antonio in 2012, became members of Concordia, and have enjoyed getting to know the city and the surrounding Hill Country.

I am a graduate of Valparaiso University, where I majored in Journalism. I received my Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Pittsburgh, where I also worked in the university's laboratory school. I taught for 30 years in McAllen, TX. Since moving to Texas I have earned a lifetime Teaching Certificate grades K-8 and endorsements in "English as a Second Language" and "Gifted Education". 

I am married to Jeff Shea and we have three children. Both of our sons, David and Matthew, recently graduated from Texas A&M University. Our daughter, Katey, is a sophopmore at Abilene Christian University.

I am incredibly blessed to have a job I love in a wonderful school!
