My name is Kari Stevens. This is my fifth, amazing year teaching 1st grade at Vista Peak. I have taught in APS for at total of 6 years. I believe children learn best in a supportive, classroom community. We become life-long learners by embracing both our mistakes and our successes. I have my MA in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix. I have a BA in Journalism/ Mass Communications from Iowa State University. I live in South East Aurora with my husband, my two sons (11 and 5) and our dog Simon. I love bike rides and 70 degree, sunny days in Colorado.
