Story: Hi, everyone! My name is Karen and I'm from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have a background in History of Art & Architecture and am also a practicing artist. Photography is my main medium, but I also love to draw and paint. Art and music are big parts of my life! After receiving my B.A. in 2015 I lived in Kinmen, Taiwan for a year teaching English in a small elementary school. I also got to help out with a writing workshop for college students and made some close local friends. My time in Kinmen made me want to come back and explore more of Taiwan and I can't wait to share my experiences with the My Dear Teacher community!
