Padilla, Karina (Kindergarten)

Hi! My name is Ms. Padilla. I will be your kindergarten teacher.  Our year will be filled with learning, excitement, and new adventures.  I believe that all children learn best and thrive when they feel valued, empowered, and safe.  Teaching is my passion and I set high expectations in my classroom.  Through collaboration and hard work, I know that students will meet those expectations. 

Prior to Candler Elementary, I worked at Sand Hill Venable with Title 1.  I am also a member of our National Guard. I joined in 2005, at the age of 17 and am now a Staff Sargent.  


My Education

In December of 2015, I graduated from Mars Hill University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. Prior to that, I received my Associates degree in criminal justice from A-B Tech.

My Life

I was born in Mexico, and now return every few years to visit family. I moved to North Carolina when I was in the second grade and attended schools in Richmond County. My parents still live there, so I get to visit often. Spending time with my family is one of my favorite things to do. 

If you have any concerns or questions about kindergarten or dual language, please do not hesitate to contact me
