Ms. Tamara Caraker
Welcome to 3rd Grade!
Hello! My name is Tamara Caraker, and I would like to welcome you and your child to the 2019-20 school year! This will be my 17th year in education, and my 4th year in the Waynesville R-VI school district. This will be my 10th year teaching 3rd grade, and I love it! I previously taught in Moreno Valley Unified School District in the state of California for 13 years before moving to the state of Missouri. I have taught 1st, 3rd, and 4th grades.
I have one awesome son, Charlie, who is a sound engineer and lives in Nashville, TN. I love poodles and have a 12-year-old chocolate-colored, toy poodle named Max who is extremely spoiled. I have a brother and his family who live in Columbia. I reside near the Lake of the Ozarks along with my wonderful mother.
I look forward to working closely with you to ensure your child has the best 3rd grade school year possible.
