Karen Gnusti, MA Educational Leadership, has spent 30 years teaching and providing school leadership in K – 12 public school districts across the San Francisco Bay Area. Karen's intent has been to improve curriculum and instruction with the outcome of engaging all students. From providing leadership at an experiential learning K - 8 school in Pacifica to overseeing the San Mateo County Outdoor Education program, she found that the outdoors provided the most success for teaching science, climate awareness, the joy of growing food, health awareness, and a path forward toward protecting our planet. Her deep Italian roots developed her love of gardening, fresh and sustainable produce, and cooking at a young age.
