High student engagement is a priority in my classroom. Lesson planning involves fitting in the use of manipulatives and cooperative learning strategies as often as possible.

The passion to teach hasn't gone away. It's made its way into my tutoring place - Karen's Corner Classroom. Now I have more time to create materials that are useful to those learners who need a little more engagement and practice with an experienced educator to help them have success in the classroom.
