Karen joined the Bethel Christian Preschool staff as a teacher in 1999 when her family relocated to the Columbus area from St. Louis, MO and became the Director in 2001. For 22 years she has enjoyed working in the Early Childhood Field as a teacher, assistant director, and now director in church-sponsored preschools.
Karen can be found in the Bethel Christian classrooms interacting and playing with the students, leading preschool group music “Praise Time” with the different age groups, and on the playground lending a helping hand. Karen’s philosophy that children learn through play and hands-on activities can be seen in action every day at BCP.
She enjoys family time with her husband, John, their 3 children and their spouses, along with the newest additions to the clan, grandsons John and William.
