Kari Podboy

I have been a teacher for several years and have recently moved from overseas to Huntsville. My family and I are getting to know the community and love all that it has to offer! I am very excited to teach first grade this year! I love being outdoors with my family whether it's running, hiking, gardening, doing yoga, bike riding, camping, or walking our three dogs! I also enjoy reading, playing the guitar and spending time with friends and family. I am grateful to be a part of the Ridgecrest family!
