Miss Karen - Lead Teacher, Preschool

Karen is the Preschool Lead Teacher. Karen attended Harding University where she studied Social Work. In 2000, Karen and her family moved from Michigan to Texas where, after years of being a stay- at-home mom, she began teaching preschool and absolutely fell in love with it. In addition to teaching in the traditional classroom setting, Karen has also taught PE and music to children ages 2-5. We are grateful that Karen returned to Michigan and was willing to bring her passion and experience to RCP. She and her husband, Dave, currently live in Clarkston and have three children ages, 19, 15 and 13. Karen is looking forward to spending time with our three year olds and is excited about getting to know our preschool families.
