Teacher - Preschool & After School
This is Cari’s third year teaching in our After School program (working with 5th grade this year) and her second year teaching preschool (this year in yellow room with the toddlers). She loves getting to help kids cultivate the skills they need to be successful in life!
Cari has always taken joy in helping others. In high school, she took a special interest in working with children and then studied Elementary Education during her time at Abilene Christian University. She also worked hard and earned her CDA (Child Development Associate) last year.
Cari was involved in Girl Scouts for twelve years, and was honored with the Gold Award. As a senior in high school, she served as a drum major with the band and was a physics tutor. At home, she is the middle child, book ended by two brothers. She has two dogs who are named after rocks (her dad is a geologist and Cari's mom just deals with his antics!). And she also has a cat who is a total love bug.
