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.
