Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Ms. Lester's First Grade Classroom!
My name is Karie Lester and I'm very excited to be joining the Weller First Grade team this year! I grew up in Oakton, VA and spent time in Korea and Japan before coming back to Oakton. After graduating high school, I went to Virginia Tech to earn my Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Communications and took coursework to become certified to teach K-8th grades. I taught in Blacksburg, VA for 30 years in 5th, 3rd, and 2nd grades. I returned to Virginia Tech to earn my Master's degree in Education and became certified as a Math Specialist.
I have two wonderful daughters who are the joy of my life! I enjoy spending time reading, kayaking, and spending time with friends and family.
I am looking forward to a great year of learning and fun in first grade!
