Mrs. Kari Vickery - Fourth Grade
I was raised in Yuba City and graduated from Sutter High School. As a youth, I was enamored with the geography of the Oroville area and took many opportunities to hike around in the beauty of the foothills (Feather Falls remains a favorite). I have long wished to make this area my home.
Another favorite California region is Humboldt County, where I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Humboldt State University. Just after graduating, I returned to Yuba City and worked as a beekeeper with my mother. It was a fascinating and wonderfully challenging experience that prompted me to consider pursuing a graduate degree in entomological genetics…but I decided I would much rather teach!
I earned my teaching credential from CSU, Chico, in 2005, student teaching at both Yuba City High School and Sunny Brae Middle School (in Arcata). My family has moved quite a bit, and I have substitute taught in every location we have lived, including the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, where I also worked as a laboratory teacher at SUNY Adirondack. I have enjoyed subbing at every grade level and subject and cannot seem to keep myself away from the classroom. It is my favorite setting, and I have many years of fun ideas to share with students. Fourth grade has always been my favorite age group!
When not in school, I enjoy hiking and swimming with my husband, son, and daughter.
