"School is where people go to acquire knowledge, learn skills, and develop values that will make them productive citizens and help them grow to their fullest potential as human beings." Wong, Harry K. (2009) The First Days of School.

Personal: My husband, Craig, and I raised our three daughters: Kellie (Adam), Melissa, and Brooke in Cranberry Township. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first grandchild this fall when Kellie and Adam welcome their new daughter! September will be a very exciting month for the Karasack family!! Karsyn, our golden retriever helps to make the empty nest a little less empty, and she loves when Melissa's dog, Susan, comes from Cincinnati to visit. Craig and I spend a lot of time on the eastern coast of Florida-it's our place to rejuvenate. To relax, I enjoy being with my kids and family, cooking, reading, traveling, and cutting the grass!

Why I teach reading: Reading opens the mind to adventure, imagination, intrigue, knowledge, relaxation, and opportunity. Make reading a part of your daily life.
