Welcome to karinbara.com.
I am a writer, a teacher, and an administrator. For the past twenty (give or take a few years) I’ve worked in higher education and nonprofit administration. I’m the former Executive Director of the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Pulaski County. I resigned my position in October 2015. I’m currently teaching a writing class and learning more about the online teaching/learning environment. I’m doing some work with nonprofits. I see and help care for my Mom, who has late stages Parkinson’s Disease every week or two. And, I’m teaching a couple of yoga classes each week.
I value creative problem solving and open discussion. I treasure diversity. I believe that establishing and cultivating relationships are the cornerstones to individual and team accomplishments. I believe that education has the power to transform lives. I also believe education is the answer to breaking the many cycles of poverty evident in our world today.
