I am very excited and proud to continue with this amazing, close-knit community and group of students! I have a wonderful husband, a hilarious 6 year old son, Jaxon, who keeps my life interesting and occupied at all times, and a new baby boy on the way! My children make me view life in a whole new way and I am so thankful to them for allowing me the opportunity to see education through a parental perspective. I have a BA in Elementary Education from Webster University and am so lucky to be one of the first grade teachers here at The Soulard School. Because I was one of their teachers last year, I get the advantage of already having an emotional bond with everyone of these students. I love being able to instill values and implement TSS philosophies to these children that I feel are essential not only to our community, but in today's world.
