Karen Anderson

Executive Director of Education Foundation
Red Oak ISD

I have had the honor of working as the Executive Director of the Red Oak ISD Education Foundation since 2009.   I also serve as the coordinator for district volunteers, and help lead the Community Partner Academy.

I am passionate about education and having a positive influence on children.  My husband, John, and I have a love for this community and district which is why we chose to come back and raise our children in the community that afforded us a great education.   I  enjoy spending time with family and friends and I spend my spare time with booster clubs, PTSA, and church youth activities.

I graduated from Stephen F. Austin University and have dual teaching certifications in English and Business Administration.  After a short time in Virginia while my husband was in the U.S. Navy, we returned to the Dallas area and I  began my career with American Express.  With a desire to get back in the education field, I began volunteering with the Red Oak ISD Education Foundation and began working on a part time basis for the foundation in 2005.  

I am passionate about my responsibilities for the ROISD Education Foundation and Red Oak ISD. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance or if you would like to know how you can partner with us as we strive to provide innovative programs for our amazing students!
