Kara M. Stalter
Educational Background: I was homeschooled from K-6 using a combination of Abeka, Sonlight, and Bob Jones curriculum. I graduated from a Christian School and then from Albright College (GPA 3.97), a liberal arts college, where I studied history and education. In 2016, I finished my Reading Specialist M.Ed. degree from Kutztown University (GPA 4.0) and currently work as the K-12 Reading Specialist at a small charter school
Teaching Experience: I have 8 years of experience teaching elementary and middle school math, pre-algebra, and literacy from K-12. Starting out as a Title I teacher in 2012, I have worked with special education, regular education, and English Learners (ELs) who struggle with reading and math. I currently work in the Wilson School District as an elementary Reading Specialist and Reading Recovery teacher.
Personal Information: I enjoy reading living books, singing, playing guitar and piano, cooking & baking, keeping active, spending time with my family and friends, and having meaningful discussions.
