Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Hoover

Hello! My name is Kari Hoover, and I am happy to introduce myself as an ESL/Interventionist at Lead Mine Elementary! 
I grew up outside Chicago and earned my degree in Elementary Education from Illinois State University.  I relocated to North Carolina and started my career in 2000, teaching fifth grade! Three years later, I went to grad school at NC State and earned my Masters in literacy. I've taught in all elementary grade levels, been a literacy coach, interventionist, and ESL teacher during my 21 years in WCPSS.  
My husband and I live in Wake Forest with our children and a spoiled golden doodle. I enjoy spending time at the pool in the warm months! I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning with our leopards!
