August 2023


    Dear Parents and Students:

    Welcome Back!

    I am excited to return to McKinley for the 2023 – 2024 school year! I am your Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department Chair.

    A brief introduction about me. I have been in education for more than 10 years. I have worked at various schools within St. Louis Public Schools. I also have extensive business industry experience.

    Should you need to contact me, please email me at miriam.townsend@slps.org . I will try to respond within 24 hours. If it is the weekend or a holiday, I will respond the following school day (Monday or Tuesday).

    I look forward to working your child this year!
