My Name is Kari Fredrickson, I am currently working as an Orientation and Mobility Specialist for Utah School for the Blind, which means that I teach students how to use their white canes and safely navigate and orient to their environment. I have previously been a Teacher of the Visually Impaired, a 1st-2nd grade teacher and owned and operate my own private preschool. I also coach Goalball, which is a para-olympic sport for the Blind and Visually Impaired. I am current the head of the Braille Challenge for the state of Utah. I have been in charge of taking students to Huntsville, Alabama to attend SCIVIS, which is Space Camp for the Interested Visually Impaired Student for the past 15 year.
I received my Bachelor Degree from Weber State University in Elementary Education. I received my certification for Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI) from University of Utah and my Certification for Orientation and Mobility (COMS-Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist)) from Texas Tech.
I am happily married to a wonderful man and have four fabulous children and thirteen beautiful grandchildren. In my spare time I enjoy camping, boating, sand railing, gardening and crocheting.
I am honored to serve on the Board for Bridge Elementary and be part of their tremendous vision for better educating student.
