Mrs. Karpovich’s room has been the go-to lunch location for my friends and me for the past two years. She is a lot of fun to talk with, and she is not afraid to share her opinion on anything from exams to the coming Elections. She has been working at Western for 14 years, teaching all levels of Chemistry (“and even Physics my first year here” she confides). For her, forming relationships with kids that continue all the way through college and beyond is her favorite aspect of teaching. Plus, as she says, “I have fun. I come to school every day and I enjoy it.” When I asked her about why WAHS is important to Crozet, she admits that is a good question. After pausing a second, she responds that Western provides a place for everyone to come and learn regardless of background, and that teachers accept the challenge of educating kids of all levels with smiles on their faces.
