"Karen was born and raised in Venezuela and education runs in her blood. Her mother ran an after school program for children since Karen was very little and Karen grew up in that program, always surrounded by children and a love of education. Karen has experience teaching students from the pre-primary education to intermediate level, in both public and private school districts in Venezuela and the United States.
After moving to the United States in 2011, Karen has focused on learning more about the U.S. education system. She has been studying Child Development at City College of San Francisco. Karen worked in a number of different early childhood education programs in the Bay Area, including teaching for two years at the Dr. Betty Shabazz Family Resource Center in San Francisco. Karen attributes much of her teaching style to her time teaching at the Family Care Center in San Francisco, noting “This position has helped me to rise up to the expectation of the children and teach them in a lucid, fun and interesting way. Thus with the children, I am creative, patient and most of all nurturing in nature.”
Karen is very excited to offer Open Minds early school to her community. Karen’s work is supported and inspired by her husband Jesus, her two sons, and her parents."
