Karen’s Goodbye Party | Central PA Photographer

Karen has easily touched countless lives in the Cache Valley Community thanks to her hard and tireless work at All About Kids. There are few people on this planet that have as much love, patience and devotion to children as Karen does. Working alongside her I was always so impressed how she knew every child’s name that entered her door, their parent’s name and knew all about their unique and different personalities as well. She truly put her heart and soul into All About Kids! Although All About Kids is now just a memory, at least it is a very fond memory, and one that cannot be remembered without a smile and the name Karen Allison.

Thank you Karen! We love you!

This blogpost is dedicated with loving memory to “Bobcat’s Dad”.

The best children’s book reader I ever did see!

Please comment below if you would like to leave Karen a message as well!!

I owe so much to you Karen!! Thank you for all that you have done for me and my family! From taking little beastly pre-school aged me (and making me keep my clothes on), allowing me to do my practicum at AAK, and unknowingly introducing me to the love of my life!!! AAK will greatly miss you-Leticia

Karen,
You’ve been such a great mentor and influence to me through out the years! You’re such a great example of someone who cares so much for those around you! Although you will no longer be involved with all about kids your heart will continue to touch those you work with! I’m so blessed to have had the opportunity to know you and will continue to be inspired by you!! Bri

Hey Karen congratulations on FINALLY graduating from aak! just kidding…they are going to really miss having you around there I’m sure. I wish I could come…it sounds fun but I will be in Provo that day. Thanks for the invite though and I’m sure a great time will be had by all!!! -MelanieDSC_0920 DSC_0923DSC_0862

Karen I appreciate all that you do for me at all about kids but I am not there anymore and they did not want to keep me. Karen thanks for helping me out at all about kids and you are wonderful and the best boss ever. Karen thanks for all that you do to help me at work and all the things I need help with to get better at work and I am sorry that I caused a problem and you are there to help me understand and what I did was wrong. You are there to help me out when I had a problem and you are always there when I need to talk to and you are always there. Thanks for being my best friend Karen. Love, Jani

Karen, You are absolutely the best boss a person could have asked for. You were always there to talk to and you’re like a second mother to me and Saesha. I am going to miss working with you, but I know that I can always text or call you if I need anything! Thank you for being such an amazing person and for letting me work with you.

Karen, I don’t even know where to begin. I am so lucky I was able to work for you. You helped me in more ways then you even realize. You were not only a boss to me but a friend. I cherish all our conversations we had. You made the work environment so fun and rewarding. I was able to make so many memories while working at your school. You also had a huge impact on my children and I can’t thank you enough for that. Tylee still asks about grandma karen:) thank you so much for all the laughs and the memories I will forever cherish. Love, Teacher Brittney

Karen, Thank you for taking a chance on me and letting me teach those precious little ones for the year I was at AAK. Although I couldn’t hack nap time I’m glad you understood where I was coming from and that I admire you and all the teachers at AAK forever! That place has been truly blessed by you and all the hardwork and love you put into it. I know Josh and I are so grateful to know you and Peter of course..hopefully next time he meets his Aunt Karen he will have slept longer than 2 seconds. I know you will do good at whatever is next for you in life! Best of luck, Cody, Josh and Peter

Dearest Karen [: When I applied for a job at your school, I never imagined that I would get more than that. I have made such amazing friendships with other teachers, learned life lessons, laughed until I cried, gained MUCH patience, learned more songs than I can remember, and made connections with so many parents and children that will forever impact me. My life will never be the same. I can’t thank you enough for all the opportunities you gave me. Lots of love, Teacher Saesha (Always)

 Thanks so much Karen and Company! I don’t know what I would have done as a working single mom over 25 years ago with my first two sons Justin and Jake. You and your staff welomed us with open arms and what a relief it was to have my precious boys in such great hands…so much so…after I had my next two boys Taylor and Talon I knew exactly where they would be getting their care when I went back to work full-time, yep, All About Kids! Huge hugs to all of you who cared for my boys with such tender loving care and for teaching them with the excellent pre-school program! Congrats Karen and again, thanks for all you have done and contunue to do for our kiddos! Enjoy the next chapter in your book of life…you so deserve the best it has to offer! heart emoticon Ya From Colorado…Tom, Patty, & Boys!
