Kara Star

Lead Teacher

Full Day Preschool

Kara’s background is in child mental health with a specific focus on emotional regulation and trauma informed practice. She is from Minnesota and currently living in Seattle. She is so excited to move to Massachusetts and become part of the BOPN community!


Kara has worked at multiple nature preschools, her favorite so far being a Spanish immersion nature preschool in Minnesota. She spent this past school year teaching at a nature preschool in Seattle.


Kara loves working outdoors with preschoolers because she gets to be a partner in joyful discovery while also supporting them in such a crucial time of social/emotional development. Her favorite things about nature preschool are storytelling games, free exploration where students have a chance to lead, and messy process art.


When Kara isn’t at school she is usually hiking, watching stand up comedy, reading a good book, thrifting, or finding a new restaurant to check out!
