Karen is currently working in the Groton-Dunstable Regional School District as the middle level mathematics coordinator for grades 5-8 and the Algebra I instructor. She says, " I am challenged every day by encouraging my students to think about mathematics and to be mathematicians. I try to make my curriculum relevant to my students by doing real-life models whenever possible and when not, to encourage them to consider how and why the mathematics works the way it does. Perseverance and problem-solving are a daily part of my students' lives in my classroom!"
