Mrs. Kari Dominguez Drake
Welcome! I am so happy to be teaching second grade at Harmony Hills! Second grade is an exciting year, full of so much growth and new learning. I am honored to be part of a wonderful school and an incredible team. I cannot wait to see what adventures await us this year! I am passionate about teaching your children and ready to work with you to help each of them realize their greatest potential.
I am a born and raised San Antonio native. I graduated from Trinity University in 2003 and then joined Teach for America and moved to New York City. While in New York City I pursued my Masters Degree in Teaching from Fordham University. I spent my first 5 years of my teaching career working in the South Bronx. The experience that I gained there was invaluable and life changing. Nevertheless, home was calling. I moved back to San Antonio in 2008 and have been part of the Harmony Hills family ever since. Over the course of my teaching career I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 5th grades, and an academic enrichment program for 3-5th graders.
In addition to being a teacher, I am a wife and mom of 4 beautiful children. All of these roles keep my heart very full. In my spare time I like to road trip with my family and experiment with cooking and baking vegan recipes.
