Degrees and Certifications:
The 2021-2022 school year marks my fifteenth year at Woerner Elementary. After serving seven years as Woerner's Special Education teacher in the Self-Contained Cross Categorical homeroom and as one of the school's two Special Education Resource Teachers, I transitioned into teaching general education with a third grade boys classroom. I then moved to teaching a split classroom of Kindergarten and first grade boys for one year, followed by six years of teaching our full Kindergarten boys class.
I received my Bachelor of Arts and Master of Education degrees from University of Missouri-St. Louis. I have Career Continuous Professional Certification in the state of Missouri to teach Elementary Education (grades 1-6), Early Childhood Education (birth through third grade), Early Childhood Special Education (birth through third grade), and Mild/Moderate Cross Categorical Special Education (grades K-12).
I love to travel and Ireland is my favorite destination. My favorite pastime is watching the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Blues. Before becoming a teacher, I worked as a child abuse and neglect social worker and supervisor for fourteen years for the State of Missouri.
Woerner Elementary is a wonderfully supportive environment for all students and I am thrilled to be part of this dedicated team of teachers and service providers!
