Welcome to Mann... Where Great Minds Grow!
Welcome to our 5th grade classroom! I look forward to seeing the growth of all of our students this year. While this year may be a little bit different, we will be working hard to cultivate creative, life-long learners. I am one of the 5th grade homeroom teachers at Mann and have the opportunity to teach science and social studies to all of our 4th and 5th graders. I love being able to guide our students in becoming innovators and scientists as well as learning about our country and history. 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 ten year old daughter, and my five year old son. 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.
