Karen thinks Hillside School is a truly magical place where amazing kids and thoughtful, caring teachers come together to do inspiring things!
Karen began her career as an educator after many years as a social worker in New York and New Jersey. After her own children were born, Karen became immersed in the world of special education and decided to put her expertise to good use in the classroom. Impacting children’s lives in a positive way has always been her goal and becoming a teacher has allowed her to do so in a creative and nurturing environment.
Karen has lived in Boulder for close to five years after being born and raised in New Jersey, then living in Philadelphia and New York City. A true Jersey girl, Karen attended Rutgers University and earned a Masters from Bryn Mawr College. She and her husband have a son, a daughter, and a very Boulder, rescued cattle dog. She enjoys spending her free time exploring the beauty of the front range with her family
