Miss Marisa Boettcher

Meet Miss Boettcher

Hello, I am the new first grade teacher in room 006. Although this is my first year as a teacher I have worked at Buder Elementary for over 15 years in several different classrooms as a teacher’s assistant. A few years ago, I decided to go back to school and fulfill my dream of becoming a teacher. In December 2021 I completed the teaching certification requirements at University of Missouri Saint Louis. I will be taking a few more course over the next 2 semesters to complete my master’s degree in Elementary Education.

When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, baking, gardening, and watching movies. I also enjoying watching our St. Louis Sports teams, I am a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan. I have three nephews.  The oldest is a first grader who keeps me informed about all the latest toys, shows, and games.

I am excited to meet and learn more about the students in my class. If you have any questions comments or concerns you can email me ( or call (314-352-4343). I am looking forward to working together to help your child meet his or her goals in 1st grade.
