Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kara Ostermeier

My name is Kara Ostermeier, a Special Education Teacher for Special School District.

I am from central Illinois and grew up in a small farm town. I got my Bachelor's Degree from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in Special Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. After moving south to get my degree, I began my teaching career in Illinois for three years, where I taught students with behavioral disabilities in grades 3-5 and Kindergarten students with Autism. I now have three years of experience teaching students with Autism in the grades Early Childhood and Kindergarten. I am currently working on getting my Master's in Special Education and, since teaching in Missouri, I am in the process of moving to Missouri. I love my dogs and coffee!
