My name is Kara Wakely. I am a 2nd grade teacher at Crystal River Elementary School. I enjoy working with children and watching them grow as learners. Teaching is a true passion of mine.
I just moved to Carbondale with my two children at the beginning of August this year. I am originally from Rhinelander, WI…. yes I’m an original “Cheese Head” I attended Silver Lake College to receive my Bachelor Degree and have been teaching Kindergarten through 3rd grade for the past 8 years. I’ve always been in love with Colorado since I was a child visiting here with my family. It is such an exciting time to finally make our way to the mountains as a little family.
I enjoy running and hiking on the weekends and playing at the parks with my own children. We are looking forward to making friends in the community and building some great life-long friendships.
