Corey teaches math, grades 6-8, at Wiesbaden American Middle School, Wiesbaden, Germany. She received her B.S. in Elementary Education and her Master's Degree in Special Education at State University of New York at Fredonia. Karen stresses, "High salary was not a priority for my career choice. However, the wealth obtained from my livelihood most certainly is! The rewards of teaching make me an extremely wealthy individual. I am paid in the bundles of confidence that leave my room each year." Her principal writes, "I can honestly say that Mrs. Corey inspires her peers, her parents, her students, and me on a daily basis to be the best that we can possibly be as human beings and as students, which we all are in one way or another."
