Welcome to Preschool!
September 01, 2015
Hello! My name is Mrs. Kari Monk! This is my 16th year teaching preschool in this district. While teaching here in Ashkum, I have taught all levels of preschool: self-contained special education, blended programs and the at-risk program.
I was born and raised in Kankakee. I attended Central through eight grade then transferred to Bishop McNamara. I received my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education from Northern Illinois University and my Masters degree in School Improvement Leadership from Olivet Nazarene University. Currently working on my ESL endorsement through the University of St. Francis. I currently live in Herscher with my husband Warren. Warren graduated from Central School District. Warren farms land in rural Ashkum and we own and operate Airstyke which is a crop dusting company. We had our beautiful daughter Kyra in April, 2013.
I love showing young children that learning is fun. I am very honored to be teaching your child and seeing so many familiar faces everyday.
I look forward to getting to know each student and their families.
Please contact me at my e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 698-2212.
