Karen S. DuBois-Garofalo, Kindergarden Teacher, Child Study and Development Center

I began teaching in 1993 and I am fortunate to have been a part of the CSDC community since 1995. I have my M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education with a concentration in special education from UNH and hold a NH state teaching license for Kindergarten through Grade 3. My time at the CSDC began in the Kindergarten classroom as a Graduate Intern. Other than 3 years as a teacher in the Preschool II classroom, I have been a Lead teacher in the Kindergarten classroom for all my CSDC career. M.Ed., University of New Hampshire, 1996

My professional interests include helping children learn and talk about diversity, developing partnerships with parents, utilizing an emergent/inquiry based curriculum to help children explore and make sense of their worlds, the development of literacy skills in children, the use of storytelling within the curriculum, documenting children's meaning making in the classroom, and creating inclusive environments for all young children
