My name is Kari Melhouse and I am an Instructional Coach at Centennial! I was born and raised in Colorado, and attended school in Adams 12. I received my bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Colorado State University. I got my elementary education license and master’s degree in Educational Psychology with a concentration in Growth, Development, and Learning from the University of Colorado at Denver.
I enjoy being a part of such a wonderful staff and school. I have taught kindergarten and first grade at Centennial before becoming an Instructional Coach. It is very rewarding to see students learn and grow throughout the year. I hope to instill a lifelong love of learning in all of my students!
