Karen Byfield ~ Lead Teacher 

 I was born and raised in Bremen, Germany. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and worked for several years in German Kindergartens. 

I started my journey at the Rasselbande back in 2016 as the Teacher in the Mausgroup. In 2018 my family and I moved to beautiful Bellingham, Washington. There I continued my passion in childhood development and worked as a Life Skills Para- Educator for the Ferndale School District. In the summer of 2020 we decided to move back to San Diego to be close to our family.  I am so excited to be back with the Rasselbande.

Working with children is the most rewarding job I can think of. I love how every day is a new adventure for your little ones.  I am always amazed with their endless energy, honesty and creativity.

When I am not working, I spend my time enjoying life with my wonderful husband and our two beautiful kids.
