Karen Carroll, Assistant Superintendent

I am in my first year serving as assistant superintendent at Idalou ISD.  Previously, I served three years as Idalou High School principal and also assistant principal for three years.  I began my career teaching and coaching at Friona Junior High for two years.  I then taught math and coached at Monterey High School for seven years before taking my first position as an administrator at Estacado High School from 2012-2014.  I am proud and blessed to be a Wildcat!

Karen Carroll

I grew up in a suburb of Kansas City called Overland Park, Kansas.  I graduated from Shawnee Mission South High School in 1999.  I was a collegiate athlete for four years, attending Adams State College and Lubbock Christian University.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Physical Education from Lubbock Christian University in 2003 and my Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Lubbock Christian University in 2011.  In 2018, I earned my Superintendent Certification through Lubbock Christian University.

      

I have been married for sixteen years to Konrad Carroll who teaches and coaches in Idalou.  We have two sons, Jackson and Ranger, who attend Idalou Middle School and go to all of the Idalou Wildcat Friday night football games.  Our family loves athletics, and we have a huge passion for how sports impact our youth through teaching teamwork and discipline.  We enjoy being outside, watching movies, cooking out with friends, and love our dog, Raider.  Jackson decided to get involved in stock showing with his first pig project.  This has been a new experience for our family, and it has taught him a lot about hard work!  Both of our sons are involved in academic UIL and youth Idalou sports.  We are very blessed to be a part of this wonderful Idalou community and the strong traditions of Idalou ISD.
