Biography

Hi. My name is Kari Rap and this will be my 9th year teaching in Laramie.  Kindergarten is my passion because I get to be the first experience of public education for children.  I get to instill a love for learning and empower the students to be responsible, self-reflective citizens.  Kindergarten has really changed in the last several years.  Students leaving kindergarten are active readers, are able to add and subtract single-digit numbers, can count to 100, and are able to write simple stories.  Through songs, movement, hands-on experiences, learning partners, small group work, large group activities, technology, and real world applications, students are given manay different avenues to learn.
