Mrs. Kari Tanner
Hello! I am Kari Tanner and I will be teaching second grade teacher during the 2022-2023 school year at High Shoals Elementary. I began teaching in 2008 after graduating from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!). This will be my 15th year of teaching, the last 9 of which have been in Oconee County. My husband, Kyle Tanner, is also a teacher in Oconee County; we are the proud parents of two little boys, Everett and Hayes, and are expecting our third child in the fall.
I strongly value education and have a passion for helping all kids feel successful. I strive to make learning meaningful for my students! I feel blessed that I have the opportunity to work with such amazing young men and women on a daily basis at HSES.
