Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kari Gillespie

       I began teaching in the Okanogan School District in 2013.   I have 15 years of experience ranging from 1st-6th grades, as well as a year teaching English in South Korea.  I grew up in Selah and received my degree in Early Childhood Education from Central Washington University.   In 1998 I earned my Master’s Degree in the Foundations of Education.  My husband, Brent, is an Okanogan grad and a retired Air Force pilot.  Through his career we had the opportunity to live in New Mexico (twice), Arizona (twice), South Korea, Japan, and Italy.  We have two wonderful boys, Leithan (18) and Grant (16).  I am looking forward to a *fabulous* year with Second Grade!
