Cedar Ridge Elementary -  Kari Eddy, fourth grade

Fourth grade teacher Kari Eddy was named Teacher of the Year at Cedar Ridge Elementary School.

“I became a teacher because that was what I always wanted to do,” Eddy said. My great-grandmother, grandmother and mother were all teachers. Nothing else was in my heart. I have taught 27 years at Cedar Ridge, all in fourth grade. I have been blessed with wonderful teammates and staff, who make me the teacher I am! With teaching, every day is different, Cedar Ridge students bring me joy every day in the little things they say and do.”

Eddy started teaching a Union way back in 1995.

“Teaching is going well this year. As a teacher, you learn quickly to be flexible in our schedule, routines and lessons. With that in mind, we have all adapted well to the changes Covid has brought to the classroom. We are looking forward to things getting back to normal,” she said.                                                            

 “Most days, students come in ready to learn. I try to make it fun, all while learning. I add as much technology and hands-on activities as possible, to make it meaningful and engaging,” Eddy explained. “Often, I am the student, due to them teaching me how technology works.”

Eddy received her associate’s degree from Tulsa Junior College and her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Northeastern State University. She has been a National Board Certified teacher since 2004.
