"Hello, my name is Karen I am an educator who loves learning! I believe that knowledge is the gateway to understanding the world and ourselves! I love the language of math and sciences as well as literature and storytelling. I utilize my expertise in drama to help students learn study strategies and my practice with mindfulness to help students eliminate anxiety related learning blocks. I’m dedicated to helping students feel confident and motivated to learn.

I am certified 1-8 and I have 7 years specific experience in third grade as well as 8 years in grade levels 1, 2, 5 and 6).

In order to reduce test anxiety and develop effective test taking strategies, I guide students in methods of 'how to learn' that can be applied to any subject matter. I share breathing techniques, positive mindset practices, and memory improvement.

I choose both fiction and nonfiction literature based on students interests. I have 6 years in third grade ELA strategies.

I show students how to strengthen their time management skills, incorporate good note taking skills into the" less...
