Karen Pogorzelski - Co-Teacher, Lilac Class
After years away, Karen is excited to be back home in the mountains of Montana, sharing her love of nature and music with the Woodland community. She joined the Woodland staff in January 2018 as an assistant teacher and will also be leading a music program for all classes this year. Prior to joining Woodland she taught at the Music Conservatory of Sandpoint. She loves how the Montessori philosophy supports children’s independence and growth, and plans to pursue a credential through the Montana Montessori Teacher Education Institute.
