My name is Kari Riffe. The Lord led
my family and I to Shoal Creek a little over a year ago. I earned a degree in
Elementary Education from Pensacola Christian College in 2011. I have taught
several different grade levels in Christian schools since then. I have had a
love for children, especially younger ones, my whole life.
I have been married
to my husband, Josh, for 8 years and we have two children who are 6 and 3. With
the Lords help, my plan in serving as the Interim Preschool Director is to help
grow this ministry to further the Gospel for His Kingdom.
