Mrs. Molly Pace

 Hello, my name is Mrs. Molly Pace (formerly known as Ms. Hufnagel), and this is my fifth 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 in working with children.  I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at Missouri State University in 2014, then went on to obtain my Master's in Counseling at Missouri Baptist University in 2017.  

I've been married to my husband for almost 3 years now, and we have a 10 month old son, Henry, who we absolutely adore!  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, keeping up with Henry, reading, playing with my two nieces, hiking, and working on quilts.  We also have a dog named Daryl who fits in perfectly with our family!   

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 navigate the new school year.  Also, if you need any assistance with the technology, please reach out so I can assist in any way possible.  This school year, 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
