Our Lady of the Assumption

Karen Fussell » Welcome!


Hello All, 
I would like to share some of my story with you. I originally hail from the Lone Star State, Texas. My roots are southern. My family originates from Georgia and Texas. Teaching for me was in the blood. My grandparents were educators and school administrators.  Both of my parents began their careers as teachers.  My mother was a college Math teacher and my father began his career as a  college Chemistry teacher. My father is a retired Orthopedic Surgeon and Two Star Rear Admiral in the US Navy. I am the oldest of four girls. I am incredibly proud of my sisters. They are my best friends. I have two sisters that are attorneys and one that is a physician.   I completed my undergraduate work at UC Davis. I hold a Masters Degree in Education from Grand Canyon University, Arizona. Teaching fourth grade was my first assignment. I taught fourth grade for nine years. Currently, I get to explore mathematics with 5th,6th, 7th, & 8th graders and teach the history of our Church to 8th graders. I enjoy teaching and learning from my students. 
My Catholic faith is my passion. I cherish being able to worship and serve in the Catholic tradition.  I love being apart of OLA Parish.  I have served on Parish Councils, Lector, serve as a Eucharistic Minister, taught Sunday School, and currently, I am a Confirmation Leader for our youth for the past 10 years. 
I am a proud mother of three bright children and three adorable grandchildren all of whom make my life overflowing with joy, laughter, and lots of love.
