Karen, who has been at Longfellow Elementary School for more than 30 years, told WBAY TV, Channel 2, Green Bay, that she believes in guiding students to being active “not only now but forever in their lifetime.”
She believes in providing activities “that are at every student’s level so that they can be successful.” Once they achieve success, she said, “they are going to become intrinsically motivated to be active.”
