Ms. Karen Mink

Hi, my name is Karen Mink, and I am so happy to be in my 21st year as an Exceptional Children's (EC) teacher here at North Harnett Primary! In addition to North Harnett this year, I am also an EC teacher at Lafaytte Elementary School half of the day.  I look forward to working hard to help my students achieve their “personal bests” in all aspects of their education.  I have a daughter who is in middle school, and we have 4 pets, that keep us busy outside of school: 2 dogs, Sunny & Charlie, and four cats: Panther, Priscilla, Cowboy, and Orange Cat. I attended Harnett County Schools myself and graduated from Triton High School in 1996.  I later earned a Bachelor's Degree from UNCW and teaching certification from Fayetteville State University.  

I can always be reached via email at 

If you need to speak to me by phone, I am at Lafayette Elementary from 7:45-11:30 and can be reached at (919) 552-4353 and in the afternoons at North Harnett Primary (919) 639-4480.
