Kara moved to North Carolina 12 years ago from Massachusetts and began teaching preschool and kindergarten at Perry Harrison where her sons were attending. Later, she taught exceptional children at Pollard Middle. She found herself missing preschoolers – their "natural curiosity, love of learning and their aha! moments" – so she is happy to find a new teaching home at The Old School. With her sons off to college, she stays busy with her two "crazy dogs, bossy chickens," and walks in the woods with her husband.
