Kara Pfouts TEACHER AND ADVISOR

Social Studies      
​​​​​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​New Vista provides an incredible learning environment for students and teachers.  As a teacher, I get to teach classes that I am passionate about and explore topics in depth with students.   There is a lot of flexibility for interests to be explored and students to be challenged.  I also choose to work here because of the relationships that are made between students and teachers.  The size of the school, advisory, and multi-age classes allow staff to get to know students throughout their high school career. ​​​​​​
