Ms. Kari Morgan

CTE Teacher 

Where are you from?  

My life has spanned across Western Washington and Florida with a short time in California. Most of my family is right here in the Harbor between Hoquiam and Ocean Shores and I have lived here off and on throughout my life. Three years ago, we bought my Grandma’s house and relocated permanently to Hoquiam / Grays Harbor City. If you ever get a chance, ask me about the most important reason I had for buying her house, it’s a cute story. 

High school and college experience 

I went to Sehome High School in Bellingham and did a short stint at Grays Harbor College waaaay back in the day. I left college to pursue a career in banking which also led me to business ownership. Later in life, I returned to college in Bremerton studying… you guessed it… BUSINESS! 

Teaching experience 

This will be my 6th year as a teacher, and my 10th year in the education field. I have taught Business and Marketing courses, Career Choices, Digital Communications, Independent Living, Laser Tech, Office Assistant, and Financial Fitness. I have also managed a student run coffee shop, served as a Work Based Learning coordinator, and been a DECA Advisor. 

I love knowing that the real world business and career skills that I teach in my classes can be immediately and forever beneficial in the lives of my students. 

Interests

When I am not organizing school activities with my students like fundraisers, Prom, or Daddy Daughter dances, I enjoy spending all of my time with my family and friends. I love coffee dates, going to the beach, crafting, and silly dancing that makes my teenager cringe. 

Words of Wisdom

Employability related, of course:  If you are not 10 minutes early, you’re late!

And most importantly, Be KIND, to yourself and others!

How would you describe yourself and your hobbies and interests   

My family is the most important part of my life. We are goofy, love hugs (so this social distancing is awful!) and enjoy going on driving adventures. I totally love playing Uno and Wii Mario games. I trash talk with the best! I like all kinds of music and don’t like scary movies unless they have vampires. My first favorite movie was The Lost Boys, check out the hair and the music!
