In 2014 Karen was the recipient of a grant through the National Storytelling Association to facilitate an integrative project for students with varying communicative abilities. Click the picture to see a short film about this project called “My Story, My Voice.”
“Karen’s positive energy spilled over into my classroom. The kids loved their time with Karen, and I always felt we were blessed with our time with her. Each week she slowly reeled in the kids attention until you could hear a pin drop in the room!”
—Ann Fredal, 4th Grade Teacher, Farragut Elementary School
“You were not boring, you gave us some parts to play in the stories and they were really funny. I liked all the instruments that you played.”
—Leo, 3rd grader
