Mrs. Arena

My name is Karen Arena and I am the Kindergarten teacher at Saint Mark School. I have been teaching for 17 years and for 12 of those years I have been a Kindergarten teacher. I job share with Kathy Dudzinski and this is our second year at St. Mark School.  We are passionate about Catholic School Education because it allows us to spread the Gospel message through our teachings. Our program is designed to be able to meet the needs of every student. We use a multi-sensory approach and a modified curriculum because every student has a unique style of learning. We are also passionate about establishing mind, body and spiritual wellness practices in the classroom to help empower students to be active servants of God in the community.

I received my undergraduate degree in Education from Southern CT State University and went on to receive my Master's degree in Health Education.
