About Me

My name is Karla Estrada, and this will be my second year working at Alpharetta High School. I was born and raised in Mexico City where I obtained my Bachelors Degree in Industrial Design and a Certificate as an ESL teacher. I worked for about 3 years in the POP and POS industry, and when my oldest child was born, I began teaching English to CEO's and managers in different companies.

4 years ago, my family and I moved to Alpharetta, to this wonderful community! I'm the proud mother of two amazing kids who also attend AHS. GO RAIDERS!

During my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, baking, traveling to new places and just enjoying life. 

In the classroom, my goal is to demonstrate that there are different ways to approach and solve problems, not only in math but in life itself. I believe that this can be achieved through establishing a teacher-student relationship built on respect and mutual support. I am honored to be a part of each and every one of my students' lives!

Please do not hesitate to contact or email me with any questions or concerns throughout the year by emailing me at estradaks@fultonschools.org.

I look forward to working with you this year.
