• Welcome to Mann... Where Curiosity Meets Exploration! 

    Welcome to our 5th grade classroom!  I look forward to seeing where curiosity and exploration take all of our students this year.  Throughout our reading, math, science and social studies I hope to guide students in asking questions, exploring, and pushing themselves to learn and grow.  I believe in giving students opportunities to explore and work together to make sense of the world around them.  

    About Mrs. Abernathy

     I have been a teacher at Mann Elementary since 2003 and have loved watching our students grow. I am originally from Chicago and came to St. Louis to attend Saint Louis University.  I went on to earn my Master's Degree in Educational Technology from Webster University where I have also taken numerous ESOL classes. 

    Outside of school, I like to spend my time outdoors as much as possible. Whenever I can, I head out to the park or to explore St. Louis with my husband, my twelve year old daughter, my eight year old son, and my baby.  I love to go running, hiking, camping, biking, and swimming. When I cannot be outside, I like to curl up with a good book.  I have several favorite authors including Madeline L'Engle, Roald Dahl and John Grisham. 


    In addition to this webpage we will be using Microsoft Teams and ClassDojo to share information.  If you need login information for either please contact me.
