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!). My husband, Kyle Tanner, is also a teacher in Oconee County; we are the proud parents of three children, Everett, Hayes and Elizabeth Kate. 

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.
