Ms. Kaber, Principal, started teaching in Beverly Hills Unified in 2002. She taught 3rd grade at Horace Mann, Kindergarten at Beverly Vista and 5th grade at Hawthorne before becoming the Principal in 2018.   She has a passion for curriculum and instruction and believes that there are many pathways for all students to be successful.  Ms. Kaber finds the most joy in connecting with students and families and looks forward to spending each morning opening doors at carline.  She loves tackling a hard math problem or discussing a great novel with students.  One of her favorite parts of being a Principal is continuing the tradition of Principals Reading in the Rose Garden with the youngest readers.  Even though she misses having classes of her own, watching students grow, mature and learn over several years is a continued gift.
