Mrs. Karissa Slinkard

My name is Karissa Slinkard. I have been married to my amazing husband, Jason, for 22 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 5th grade at Saraland Elementary. Our youngest is AnaClaire and she attends K at the SEEC.

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.
