I am very excited for my new role this year! I have been a part of The Soulard School for four years. I began by being the lead learner in first grade and, in my fourth year, had the opportunity to co-teach a combined first and second grade classroom. Now, in year five, I am able to expand my experience even more with my new role co-teaching kindergarten, visiting the The Little School daily, and introducing math and handwriting materials in the Quietude preschool classroom. I love being part of so many learning communities! It will be rewarding to watch the children grow and learn as they journey through TSS!
Prior to the Soulard School, I graduated from the University of Missouri - St. Louis with my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I had one year of kindergarten at a local charter school under my belt as I began my adventure here at TSS. In 2009, I married my husband who is a General Manager at a restaurant in Creve Coeur. We are also excited to start a family of our own someday and get to see our own children blossom at our school!
I am lucky to be a part of this amazing community. Where else can you find more parents who are involved with the school, not just their child’s education, but the school as a whole? Together, we can create a place of respect and integrity. We can build and support our children no matter what paths they may follow and interests they may pursue. This is a place where students can be passionate about learning. That is what I am here to do, instill in my children the desire to learn.
“The important thing is not so much that every child should be taught, as that every child should be given the wish to learn.”
