Mrs. Karissa Slinkard
My name is Karissa Slinkard. I have been married to my amazing husband, Jason, for 21 years. We have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls. Thorin is a high schooler at Saraland High. Xander is in Middle School at Saraland Middle. Zoe is in 4th grade at Saraland Elementary. Our youngest is AnaClaire and she attends K4 at North Mobile Christian.
I have taught first grade and Kindergarten in Springfield, MO. I taught for 6 years before I took some time off to be a full-time mom. I am so excited to be getting back into the classroom. I have missed this part of my life!
While away from the classroom I lived for 3 years in Germany and 3 years in Italy. This experience changed my life! I learned so much about myself and other cultures. I hope I get to use some of what I learned in these experiences in the classroom.
