My name is Kari Chagolla. I have been teaching for over 30 years and 25 of those years have been right here at Stetson! My teaching experience includes regular education as well as Special education, and I have enjoyed teaching preschool, first, second, third, fifth, and eighth grades. Currently, I teach second grade here at Stetson.
Stetson is like a second home to me. My son and daughter both attended Stetson during their elementary school years. They are in their twenties now but still like to visit mom at school, along with some other staff they grew fond of during their time here. My husband of 32 years also stops by from time to time offering support and help. They are a wonderful and supportive bunch whom I love dearly!
When I’m not here at school, you’re most likely to find me spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy spending time in nature (the mountains and the ocean) or reading a good book.
