Mrs. Kari Lester

Welcome to 4th or 5th grade!!! I am so excited to have you in my class and share lots of fun adventures together this year! Although this school year may look different than what you have experienced in the past, we will still be able to learn and grow together through fun and adventure. Math and Science are my passion, I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do!  

My mission as a teacher is to motivate, inspire, encourage, and support students. I believe that by providing a safe, secure, and loving environment students will be able to thrive, not just in an educational setting but also socially, emotionally, and cognitively. I believe that relationships are the key to building a foundation for life-long learning. Every student has a success story waiting to be written. It is my joy to be a small part of this while they grow, develop, and enjoy thier time here in the 4th and 5th grade at BES.
