Teacher Spotlight – Karen Scaduto

Today’s teacher spotlight is on Karen Scaduto, assistant teacher in our three year old program.  Karen has been working with us since 2015, after spending several years as a stay at home mom.  Previously, she taught transitional first, first, and second grades in public schools.  Karen holds a master’s degree in elementary education from Syracuse University and NYS Permanent Teacher Certification (Nursery-6th).  She loves being back in the classroom, spending her mornings with the children at Funshine!  Giving hugs, sharing books and being “in the moment” with the three year olds are her favorite parts of her Funshine day!

Karen lives in New Paltz with her husband Jim and her children, Chris and Catie.  In her free time, she enjoys hiking, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
