Teacher Profile
Teacher Profile: Kari Hudson
03/22/2017
My name is Kari Hudson. I teach 8th grade Science and Social Studies at Rice Lake Middle School. I have been teaching for 19 years in the Rice Lake School District, all of which have been at the 8th grade level. I grew up in Platteville, Wisconsin and graduated from Platteville High School in 1994. I attended the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and received my Undergraduate Degree in Elementary Education (1-9) with a minor in broad field science in 1998. After teaching for a few years, I received my Master’s Degree from UW-La Crosse in 2004. I reside in Rice Lake with my husband and two children. My husband is a water operator for Rice Lake Utilities and my children attend Rice Lake School District. My older daughter, Brynn, is a 7th grader at RLMS and my youngest daughter, Ella, is a 3rd grader at Hilltop Elementary School. My educational philosophy is to nurture and guide students to become productive citizens, lifelong learners, and healthy, caring, ethical and intellectually reflective individuals. The skills, knowledge and personal competence that students acquire through education should enable them to be successful now and in the future. Students must be nurtured to handle responsibility, making choices and decisions. My philosophy also incorporates my passion and enthusiasm for science education. That is precisely why I feel it is imperative to create an environment where all my students will be able to construct meaningful ideas and concepts of science with the purpose of understanding this rapidly changing world. I believe the most effective way for students to reach an understanding of scientific principles is by exploring concepts through inquiry based investigations. My objective in teaching science is to create a minds-on, hands-on, discovery approach. I believe this approach allows each student the accumulation of observations, experiences and the ability to seek out hidden meanings and underlying patterns in science. With the implementation of the next generation science standards, students will be challenged in the area of science literacy.
