Congratulations Nurse Karl on your Retirement!

NurseKarl

We have been fortunate to have Nurse Karl at LES for the last 5 years!

I was raised in rural Campbell County and attended Covington Latin School. After graduation, I attended Thomas More College, then transferred to Northern Kentucky State College (now NKU), graduating with an AAS in Nursing. I began working at St. Elizabeth Hospital in 1972 and held several positions during my time there. I obtained a Batchelor of Science in Nursing in 2007 and a Doctor of Divinity in 2009. I retired from St. Elizabeth in 2012, but retirement didn't seem quite right for me. I had a few odd jobs, but none provided the satisfaction of serving others.

In 2015 I started a second career with Covington Schools at Latonia Elementary and have been here since.  I have many memories of my time at Latonia, but fondest are my memories of the students. My profession is one of caring and of service. Those qualities have become ingrained into my work as a school nurse. I've given a lot of medicine and put on a lot of band-aids, but most essential is the ability to serve others. To be helpful. To be kind. To demonstrate love for another. Sometimes that involves documenting the heartbreak of child abuse and neglect, sometimes it's just listening when someone needs a friend. I complete my career at Latonia knowing that I have done my best to serve both students and staff. I am grateful for the opportunities I have had, the things I have accomplished, the experiences I've had, the people I met, and the people I have served. 

In retirement, I will spend more time with my wife, children, and grandchildren. I have a lot of projects at home and will now have time to work on them. I will re-arrange my workshop and plan to resume my woodworking hobby. There are always lots of things to do, but never enough time to do them. I'm looking forward to the next chapter.
