Kara TalledgeNicole Hartfield
5th Grade Teacher
Mrs. Talledge joined DaVinci Academy for the 2017-18 school year. Kara obtained her K-6 Elementary Education teaching degree from Bethany Lutheran College in Mankato, Minnesota. Her program emphasized the importance of integration, whole child development, and inspiring students to make observations and ask questions. She has implemented these techniques into her classroom daily. After obtaining her degree, Kara spent two years out west teaching the 4th and 6th grades in Salt Lake City, Utah. She and her husband then relocated to San Francisco, California. For the past three years, she has been both a teacher and Operations Director at The Right Approach to Education where she has been able to polish her individualized teaching methods and learn a variety of alternative teaching methods. Outside of teaching, Kara enjoys trying new foods, yoga, traveling, and being on the lake. She and her husband are excited about being back in the Midwest to be closer to family and friends!
