Karen Letson-Drake started working at Edgewood in 1981 as an elementary teacher, then became a specials teacher and years later began coaching. She attended Oregon State and received her Bachelors of Science in Elementary & Physical Education. Mrs. Letson-Drake is currently teaching Study Skills to 6th, 7th & 8th graders and Physical Education to 4th-8th graders. She is also the athletic director and head coach of the girls volleyball, basketball and soccer teams. When she is not in the classroom or on the court/field working with Fairmont students, she enjoys cooking, spending time with her daughters, and designing bulletin boards. Some of her most special memories over the years at Fairmont have been her time spent coaching and chaperoning travel week. “I wear many hats here at Edgewood and enjoy every minute of it!” says Mrs. Letson Drake.
