Elementary School Teacher - Alpine Utah School District

I taught children in 1st through 6th grade all state required curriculum in a groundbreaking Bi-Lingual immersion program. As Special Transition Teacher for all 6 grade levels, I taught at all grade levels due to my own Bi-Lingual (Spanish-English) native speaking ability. I was educated in Buenos Aires, Argentina where I attended the Cambridge British Boarding School.

Private Music & Speech Teacher –
“Music to Awaken the Brain” Danville, California 1976–1992

As a private music, voice and speech teacher I engaged children’s faltering abilities at self-expression, and assisted in unlocking their creative natural voice using music, movement and body posture, breathe techniques, diction principles of phonation, and a healthy dose of laughter. Expressive vocal control in speaking and singing were always a part of the musical selections at recitals and Community performances. Giving children the gift of vocal self-expression brings daily enthusiasm and joy to life. A child’s ability and confidence to connect and communicate with others in one or more languages, unlocks their personal magical journey throughout life.

International Travel & Performance Experiential Education 1968–1970

As a performing Cast member of Up with People® I travelled throughout North and South America, Europe, and Africa. I was an integral team member in a Cast of 175 young ambassadors chosen from 26 countries. We proved daily, that language barriers melt in every country through the power of music and enthusiasm. We set up staging and then performed weekly at schools, Business and Conference Venues and at Political Events nationally and internationally. We sang and performed original music in the native language of the counties where we were invited to perform. During the 2nd year with the Cast, I was trained in technical Sound Mixing and Engineering for live performances and Voice-Over editing skills.

She graduated from Up with People High School and is a proud alumnus of this organization, which with SING-OUT conviction, began to connect with her generation, traveling and performing in 26 countries around the world.

Up With People Cast

Karyne is a three-time Cancer Survivor. Twice with breast cancer, and once with endometrial cancer. After surgery, she did not use chemotherapy or radiation. Her choice and vitality are the result of Rain Forest anti-cancer herbs, on which decades of scientific research have accumulated concerning phytochemical cytotoxic effects.
