"As the teacher of the youngest children at SWPCC, Karen Barrett has been a crucial member of the community for over 30 years. She's served many roles but is best know as our beloved Young Toddler teacher. Her approach with children has been described by many adults as "absolute magic". She creates playful classroom environments that are rich and inviting. Her warmth and kindness goes far in nurturing a deep sense of belonging for all of the children and families in our community. She centers play and creativity, and consistently, and continuously models deep listening with our youngest students."
