Meet Cari

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I am currently an Illinois certified teacher, but have moved to Des Moines. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades respectively for 12 years. I taught at a Montessori preschool (The Academy of Music and Movement) in Oak Park, IL for 2 years while my own children were in elementary school. I have raised a boy and a girl who are adults now and are happy and successful (my greatest accomplishment!) I was an ardent volunteer for my children's schools as well. I know I will always be involved in education of little ones! I love teaching, inspiring, and supporting. It's my vocation. I am healthy and lead an active lifestyle. I love to garden and spend as much time as I can out in nature. I hike, swim, bike and take long walks. Your child/children will not only be well cared for, but learn much about the outdoors Read more and all its wonders as well. I am fun loving, patient and easy going. To me, there is nothing more joyful than a child’s laughter :-)
