Parents As Teachers

MEET FPS PARENTS AS TEACHERS

Kari O'Neal

My name is Kari O'Neal and I have been a parent educator for Fulton Public Schools for 14 years. I have been married for 19 years and I have two boys. With my husband being a coach for football and baseball and my boys participating in sports, we stay busy!!

We love getting to know new families in their homes. As parent educators, we believe the parent is the child's first teacher! Our job is to help you prepare your child for school readiness. If you sign up for Parents as Teachers, we will have fun watching your child grow and learn!

If you are interested in the program, please click the link below and complete the enrollment form.  Upon completion, a parent educator will contact you within two business day.  We look forward to working with your family.
