In her own words . . .

“Teachers need to make time for students to read during the school day. Lessons need to be planned to ensure that time for reading is a priority and that reading is incorporated into all subjects. Reading should not be only an activity for a reading block. Students should read in all subject areas to acquire vocabulary and reading skills across many genres and topics.”

In the words of others . . .

“Mrs. Ferraro is one of the hardest working, generous, kind, compassionate and loyal teachers with whom I have had the good fortune to work. I am humbled to be part of a school that has a community led by such an accomplished and giving person.”
- Ellen Green, Frostwood Elementary Principal

“Karen’s kids leave her class with a love for learning – she excites that in children. I have had parents tell me how much their child has grown while in her classroom. I believe that Karen is a very caring, loving, strong teacher. Our campus is very fortunate to have her.”
- Barbara Perry, Frostwood Elementary
