Kara has a degree in Elementary Education, and spent a couple years teaching elementary school, but found her passion in teaching Early Childhood. She began in Early Childhood Education in 2010. Her favorite thing about teaching is seeing a child complete a task on their own when he or she previously needed assistance. She and her husband live in Avon with their five-year-old daughter, three-year-old son, and dog. She enjoys camping, boating, and being outside, as well as reading, baking, crafting, and sewing.
