Anne Karabon began her professional career as an early childhood and public elementary school teacher. She is committed to partnering with community institutions to understand and address urgent social problems by generating insights into the authentic, multiple voices and perspectives of community members.

Karabon's research and publications focus on the social, geographical, developmental, and cultural factors that impact a person’s learning experiences, specifically how early educators draw on children's funds of knowledge- the multiple resources and knowledge acquired from daily experiences at home, in the community, and in play- to inform teaching practices. She has published articles in a range of outlets, including Early Childhood Development and Care, TaTE, TEQ, Journal of Latinos and Education, and Early Years: An International Research Journal.
