Ms. Elizabeth Buehler
Hello Kindergarten Families
My name is Elizabeth Buehler. I will be your child's teacher for this year. This this my second year working at Washington Montessori, and my fifth year teaching in the district. I completed my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at Harris-Stowe State University and my graduate degree in Early Childhood Education at Lindenwood University. I am certified birth-3rd grade and 1-5th grade in general education. I am currently working on getting my K-12 Reading Certification at UMSL.
I began my teaching career in 2009. I worked at the Normandy Early Childhood Center as a teacher assistant and Pre-K teacher. In, 2014, I took a job teaching kindergarten in the SLPS District at Herzog Elementary. In 2018, I accepted a position to teach kindergarten at Washington Montessori.
I was born and raised in St. Louis. I graduated from Notre Dame High School in 2002. I currently live in south city by Carondelet park. In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends. I have a six year old niece and a four year old nephew that I get spoil on a regular basis. I also enjoy comping/floating, crafting, and going to Cardinals and Blues games.
I truly love teaching and I am so excited to work with your child this year. We look forward to you being part of our school family this year. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. You can reach me by email at email@example.com or on my cell phone at 314-402-1022.
On March 22, 2020 Mayor Lyda Krewson announced a mandatory, 30-day stay-at-home order aimed at preventing further spread of COVID-19. In light of this new restriction, all schools in the City of St. Louis have extended their closures through April 22, 2020. This decision will be continually re-evaluated in coordination with the Mayor's Office and Dr. Frederick Echols, the Director of the City's Department of Health.
The Disctrict, in partership with the City and area charters, has developed a meal program for families. The City has assured us that we can continue to provide grab-and-go-meals at 36 schools in the city. Breakfast and lunch are served Monday through Friday, 8 am to noon. Please visit www.slps.org/meals to see a list of participating sites.
The Academic team has created enrichment packets to encourage continuous learning among students of all grade levels. These packets are available at meal distribution sites, and they are posted online at www.slps.org/keeponlearning.
The District has established a direct hotline for students and parents requiring social and emotional support. The hotline can be accessed by calling 314-345-6900 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you, or someone you know, needs services such as help with utilities, an internet connection for online learning, assistance with seniors, mental health care or free food for pets, visit www.slps.org/resources. New information is being added all the time

GoNoodle is a GREAT way to get kids moving around. Some videos are educational and others are wacky. Use this tool as a "brain break" to allow kids to step away from learning for a moment.
Virtual Field Trips
Virtual field trips allow children to visit places around the world without ever leaving their homes. Through virtual field trips, they can visit other states, countries across the globe, and even other planets. This allows children to experience places they wouldn’t get to see otherwise. Here are several free resources your family can use to take virtual field trips.
