Meet Mrs. McArthur


I am Karla McArthur, and I’m the librarian and a special education teacher at Duck Springs Elementary. I love my students here at DSE and look forward to an exciting school year!

My husband is Mac McArthur and we have two children: Caleb and Hannah. Caleb is 30 and works in Centre, AL. Hannah is 27 and goes to school at NYU. Our cats, Goldie and Quentin, are part of the family as well!

I graduated from JSU with a BS in Special Ed. in 1995 and immediately started to work on my Master's in the same area at the University of Alabama. Since then, I've completed a certification in Secondary English and K-6 General and received a Master's and an Ed.S in Library Media. I have been teaching for 24 years, and I still love to come to work every day. Even though I’ve been in education for quite a while, I encounter new things each year. My goal is to continue to learn and grow with my students and to experience new surprises each day.
