"Karen was all about the kids: she made them forget what they couldn't do and do what they thought they never could."

Karen Mays, who spent 30 years as a speech therapist at Pepper Drive School in the Santee School District, passed away on January 20 after a long battle with breast cancer, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
