Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kari Williams
My name is Kari Williams and I am very excited to join Bryan Road Elementary School! I have taught in NC for 13 years (12 years in 1st Grade in Wake County). I earned a master of arts in teaching from East Carolina University in 2005 and received my National Board Certification in 2010. I use technology and data-driven instruction to meet the needs of all learners. I taught in a “Leader in Me” school which helped me to instill ownership and pride in my students’ learning. I want to inspire children to enjoy learning and to always do their personal best. I believe building relationships within the classroom, at home, and in the school community are essential to creating student success. I provide an organized, fun, and safe learning environment where students are supported and celebrated. I want to prepare students to be responsible, kind, productive citizens who enjoy learning for a lifetime.
My husband and I live in Clayton, NC with our 2 cats, Ninja and Sushi. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking, eating, traveling, reading, and watching movies. I am looking forward to a successful year and meeting the families of the Bryan Road community!
