Language Arts


I graduated from East Tennessee State University in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science in Education.


This is my 22nd year of teaching. I enjoy every minute of every day with my students!

I started my teaching career at Liberty Elementary and Grays Chapel. I eventually landed a middle school job at NERMS and then decided to come closer to home. 

I have been at SWRMS for the last 16  years and love it!



Hello, and welcome to SWRMS. My name is Karen Rouse and I teach 8th grade Language Arts. I am happily married and have two children. My daughter is a junior at The University of North Carolina at Wilmington and is majoring in Social Work. My son is a senior at SWRHS. You can find me on any given Friday night watching him play football for the COUGARS... #COUGARPRIDE #66

I enjoy reading books of all genres. My favorite author is Nicholas Sparks!

I look forward to hearing from many of you in the upcoming school year!
