Mrs. Karen Pollack

After spending many years living and teaching in Mexico City, Mexico, Karen Pollack came to Arizona two years ago to live closer to her daughter in Tucson, and son who lives in California.

She has a Master’s degree in Spanish and in Second Language Acquisition and has been teaching for almost twenty years. Saints Simon and Jude is the third Catholic School where she has taught, and she is a huge proponent of Catholic Education. Karen currently teaches Spanish to grades 4-8 at SSJ and is very happy to be part of this wonderful community.
