Amber started a private PreK class in 2014, which is now expanding into a multi-class preschool program beginning this Fall 2021! As a former teacher at EBISD, Amber has great relationships with the staff and administration, creating a seamless transition between her program and the public school. She has a proven record of sending children fully prepared for Kindergarten and has more accumulated experience than any other preschool program or childcare teacher in town!

Amber has an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Drafting Technology, which she used to work in the Engineering department of a local government office for almost five years. Deciding that a desk job was not her career of choice and wanting to return to working with children (as she had during HS and college), Amber went back to school to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Houston. She used her teaching degree and certification to work as a third grade teacher at East Bernard Elementary for a number of years. Then she wanted to challenge herself even further and also set an example for her children, so Amber once again returned to school to complete her Master’s Degree in School Administration from Lamar University. After eight years teaching in the public school system, she decided to pursue her personal dream of beginning an independent Pre-K program. 

Amber is married to Stephen Karasek, who was the "backbone" of making this business venture and dream a reality. Stephen is a handy-man, a jack-of-all-trades, and a great dad. Amber and Stephen have been married now for over 20 years and have three children, Cheslee (20), Paetyn (17), and Bryton (15).

Amber has been extremely involved in the EB community, as she brought up three children through the public school system here. All of her children continue to be heavily involved in local community activities, clubs, sports, and volunteer programs. She and her family are long-standing members of a community church in our area, and she has been heavily involved there in Children’s ministry, Youth ministry, Women's ministry, and Missions activities over the years. 

Amber is a lover of camping, dancing, reading, crafting, junkin', and traveling. She prefers quaint settings over large social gatherings. Her two biggest ‘bucket list’ items are to take an Alaskan cruise and to become a published author one day! Amber's best friend is her husband and she loves spending time with her immediate family above everything else!
