Karen Brogan (Educational Aide)
With a secretarial and music background on hold to raise a family, I volunteered at St. Mary’s and Holy Family Middle School while my four children attended these fine schools as students. I became a teacher aide at St. Mary’s in 1994 when an opening became available. Soon after, I initiated after-school piano lessons for community enrichment and have had the pleasure of working with many wonderful students and families as their piano teacher. I am committed to the emotional well being of children and the support we need to give our hardworking teachers. In 2012, I started a pop tab collection program for the Ronald McDonald House Upper Midwest Charities. Every May, our school families make an annual donation to this worthy children’s cause. In my spare time, I enjoy family time, theater and the performing arts, travel, baking, working in my yard and a quiet walk in the woods.
