Kara Davis (AR '16) | Fourth-grade teacher, Joe Mathias Elementary School | Rogers, AR

Date of Award: November 18, 2016

There were tears galore the day fourth-grade teacher Kara Davis joined the Milken Educator family. Kara got an extra-special hug at the end of her surprise notification from her daughter Sarah, a third-grader at Joe Mathias Elementary. In addition to serving as a literacy resource for her school and district, Kara is committed to supporting and mentoring new teachers to keep them in the profession; she started a class for Mathias' first-year teachers to help them with school policies and procedures, lesson planning, and preparation for conferences and evaluations.
