My full name is Jacob Andrew Karns. However, I go by Jake. I am born and raised here in Missouri and I have been in this district since kindergarten. As to my liking/interest/habits as a student/reader/writer/speaker, it is simple. I love participating in all of those things when it is something I have an interest in. I struggle truely enjoying things that I have no interest in. However, through reading, writing, and speaking is how I learn what I do/don't like so I always tend to stay open minded. I am looking forward to an interesting year in ELA 2.
