My name is Kari Vaclavik (vas-la-vick...no C sound, but rather an ssss sound :)) and this will be my 10th year teaching.
That picture above is my family. My husband, Mr. V, Savannah, Landyn, and Weston. I read to my children daily, sing songs, and allow them all to explore their world. I hope to continue to build their love of exploration and learning, and my hope is to help you (my students) do the same - explore and learn daily!! My family is my life and they have always encouraged me to do my best, and I will always encourage all of my students to do the same!
A few things about me:
* Harry Potter and Star Wars are two of my all time favorite series (I also love all of the Jurassic Park movies!)
* I love to read all things - but particulary love the genre of Fantasy (Rick Riordan is my most suggested author for jumping into this genre)
* I graduated with a BA in English and a BS in Elementary Education
* I have a masters in Reading in the Elementary Classroom
* I love chocolate (dark chocolate the most), Coca-Cola, and water bottles
* I absolutely adore teaching FIFTH GRADERS!
I am also going to be trying Bloomz this year for easy communication. Just follow the instructions in the picture below.
This will allow me to send messages to you about upcoming tests, quizzes, projects, school news, etc.
I cannot wait to meet you all!
