Mrs. Molly Pace

 Hello, my name is Molly Pace (formerly known as Ms. Hufnagel), and this is my fourth year teaching 5th grade at Adams Elementary!  I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and am happy to continue to live and work in the area. My passion lies in working with students, and every job I have ever had entailed me working with kids, being that I was a preschool teacher before becoming an elementary teacher.  I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at Missouri State University, then went on to obtain my Master's in Counseling at Missouri Baptist University.  

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, reading, playing with my two nieces, hiking, and working on quilts.  I just recently got a dog named Daryl, and we have so much fun with him!   

I am a firm believer that a child's educational success involves a partnership between the teacher and the parent.  Therefore, I will do my best to keep up communication with you in terms of your child, and I ask you to do the same. I encourage you to email ( or text (314-724-6010) if you have any questions or concerns as we start the school year virtually.  Also, if you need any assistance with the technology, please reach out so I can assist in any way possible.  While this is new territory for all, let's give ourselves and each other grace as we tackle the journey ahead.  I can't wait to get to know you and your child throughout this school year.  

 -Mrs. Pace
