Karene is at it again! She will be joining TeamQuest for her third half marathon, this time in Orange County, CA on May 7, 2017! Her personal experience with her son, Wil, who has dyslexia, inspired her to become a Certified Academic Language Therapist and active member of the International Dyslexia Association. She has spent over 17 years helping children learn to read, spell and develop other skill necessary to be successful in school.
"Running is definitely not my passion. In fact, I hate running... but I love being a student advocate, assisting parents in the educational process, and training other teachers to work with students that have dyslexia. After completing my first TeamQuest Half Marathon in San Diego last summer, I believe I can continue to show my dedication to these students by running. A half marathon is nothing compared to what my students endure learning to read."
