Ms. Karen Koch
Lead Teacher, Advanced Enrichment
Year Started: 1996
Degrees: B.A., Sociology, Washington University; M.Ed, Montessori Education, Xavier University. Orton Gillingham training
Experience: 2 years in education prior to The Summit. Prior to teaching, I worked in New York City in textile sales for apparel and in Melbourne, Australia in textile sales for home furnishings.
Inspiration: I am an alumnae of both Cincinnati Country Day School and Seven Hills School. However, I love The Summit because of its spiritual awareness and character-building emphasis.
Philosophy: As a teacher, I must continue to evolve as a person. It is important to strive towards excellence by focusing on my gifts. Humility, kindness and intelligence are key ingredients in my teaching.
Two children, Brian and Cameron. I love needlework, traveling, yoga, and cooking.
