Teacher - After School
Cari is a first-year teacher at Fortress where she serves as the Assistant Homework and Enrichment Teacher. 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. She studied Elementary Education at Abilene Christian University for a year and a half and is now taking courses through Tarrant County College.
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!).
