Mrs. Becker was my 6th grade teacher from 2000-2001 and easily one of my favorite teachers of all time. From these comments I think it's quite apparent that she has made a profound impact on the lives of so many students.

Mrs. Becker was my math teacher and was my across the street neighbor. I just found out about her passing. She will be sorely missed by my family and I. The Schulman family will miss her very much.

Mrs. Becker was my 6th grade teacher and I can easily say the most influential teacher of all my education. She was one of the most dedicated and caring teachers I have ever had. She was always willing to do whatever it took in order to ensure her students succeeded. She impacted so many lives during her career and she will never be forgotten

We were deeply saddened to hear of Karen's passing. She was a wonderful woman. Our hearts go out to you at this difficult time. Unfortunately, we have been in California and were unable to attend the funeral and shiva.

Mrs. Becker was my 6th grade teacher in 2004-2005. She was one of my favorites, and we planned a wonderful surprise party for her at the end of the year because she was retiring. She always brightened my day and had so much passion for teaching and cared so deeply about her students. She was a truly incredible woman and teacher. May she rest in peace.

I was fortunate enough to have Mrs. Becker as a teacher as well. Rest in peace - you will be missed dearly by all!

I was fortunate enough to be one of Mrs. Becker's students. I will never forget her kindness, warmth, and the knowledge she bestowed upon myself and my classmates. I know that she played a large part in helping mold me into a successful young woman and a determined educator. My condolences are with her family.
