Karen’s Bio

I have been working with children for about 16 years. Currently I work for Mohegan Elementary School. I am a Special Education Paraprofessional. I work from 8am-12pm. I worked at a daycare in Westbrook as a Preschool teacher and Assistant Director for 9 years. I worked at Pfizer kids in New London for 7 years as a Toddler Teacher and then worked as a nanny in Groton for 2 years. I left the Nanny position because the youngest child was starting school. I took care of 2 children and my responsibilities were to get the oldest ready for school, set up a weekly lesson plan for the youngest child, I made it educational but fun. I feel the best way to learn is through play and exploration. We read a lot of books together and sang a lot of songs, I also would set up play groups so she would socially interact with other children her age and get to know the children she would be eventually going to school with. I love children. I have a 15 year old son, a 4 month old son and an 11 year old step son who has been diagnosed with Asperger's . It takes a lot of patience, understanding and love to have a child with special needs. But to be honest all children should be treated with patience, understanding and love. I would like to have the opportunity for this position and I look forward to talking to you.
