She is entering her eighth year teaching preschool in a play-based school with a strong science emphasis, and she just completed an AS Degree in Early Childhood Education. In Karen’s free time she cares for several honeybee hives, gardens, watercolor paints, travels, and loves outdoor Dutch oven and solar cooking.
