Kara Gold, Journalism Teacher, M.S.
Welcome to my web page! I am extremely excited to be teaching at Conroe High this year! A little background about myself - I grew up in a small town just an hour south of Houston, called El Campo. I played tennis and was involved in many different clubs and organizations.
I then went to Texas A&M University (WHOOP!) and earned a bachelor's in Agricultural Communications and Journalism. Two years later I earned a master's in Integrated Marketing Communications from West Virginia University and began teaching in Palestine, TX in 2012. After teaching in East Texas for two years I decided to move back a little bit closer to home and found my place here at CHS.
I teach Journalism I, Yearbook (The Flare), and Newspaper (The Triumph) and I am also the UIL journalism coach this year.
