Karen Mills is an original employee of Eastside Prep, having been hired by the pioneering founders of the school in January 2003 after completing her Masters in Library and Information Science. She served initially as the main administrative support for the Head of School and Board of Trustees while also acting as the school’s librarian, collecting materials and developing systems for what would become the EPS library. She assumed the role of Director of Admissions for the 2005-2006 school year, and then focused her responsibilities to full-time librarian the following fall. Karen currently teaches Literary Thinking courses in the Middle School.  When not at school, Karen spends time playing with her two daughters, running long distances, and reading as much young adult fiction as possible.

“My favorite part about working at Eastside Prep is the people. The teachers, staff, and administrators are energetic, mindful, dedicated, fun-loving and intellectually engaging. The students are curious, bright, diverse and involved.”
