Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Karen Resh

Teacher Assistant

 I was born and raised in Gulfport, MS   I graduated from St. John High School, in 1978, and attended college at the USM campus in Hattiesburg where I graduated in 1982 with a BS degree in social work.  Before working as a teacher's assistant, I worked at the Department of Human Services and then as a Municipal Court caseworker with the Gulfport Police Department.  I left the social work profession to stay home with my children for a few years, and when I went back to work, I accepted a job as a SPED assistant.  I have over 26 years experience working in SPED, and thirteen of those years, I have worked for the Gulfport School District, at Bayou View Elementary.  I love what I do!
     I have been married to Neil Resh, for 34 years, and we have three children:  Mollie, Phillip and Edward.  My family and I are members of St. James Catholic Church .  My happy place is with my family, and I enjoy cooking and boating--especially night rides on the Biloxi  River and camping on Horn Island.
