Kari Wetzler, Lead Teacher - Kindergarten Class

Teacher Kari is passionate about teaching young children and the BCNS philosophy of learning through art and play. She wants her students to graduate the program with confidence in themselves as individuals, curiosity for new experiences, empathy for others, and a love for learning.

In addition to her years as the Pre-K lead teacher, she also has ten years of elementary school teaching experience.
