Courtney Keefe, STEAM Teacher 

I am incredibly excited to tackle the role of STEAM Instructor yet again this year! Collaborating closely with classroom teachers and students alike, I am looking forward to the awesome learning experiences and projects we will be creating together as we continue to embrace the Makers Movement as we engaged in the Design Thinking Process. Think, Design, Make, Build, Tinker, Improve!

It's hard to believe that this is my seventh year with The Soulard School and my fifth as the STEAM instructor! I feel extremely lucky to be a part of this special community and have the opportunity to work with such remarkable children. I attended undergraduate at Loyola University in New Orleans where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.  After Hurricane Katrina, I migrated to Miami for two years before returning to St. Louis to attend graduate school at Lindenwood University where I received my Master of Arts in Teaching in Elementary Education.

One of my goals as an educator is to inspire a love of learning in my students, as I share my passion for learning with them. I believe that teaching is more than a sacred responsibility; it is a privilege. When I am not at school, I can be found spending time with my family, friends, and beloved canine companion Jewel, curled up with a good book, chasing pavement at the various city parks, or exploring anything that piques my curiosity.
