Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Ms. Siems and I am going to be your first grade teacher! This will be my third year teaching first grade at Shenandoah. My favorite subject to teach is reading! I LOVE first grade because I get to see all of my students grow so much in their reading and writing skills. We are going to be writing stories before you know it!!!
I grew up in Fenton, Missouri and moved to South City four years ago! My parents still live in Fenton with their dog (Koda) so I get to visit them often. I have two brothers (Clayton and Ben) and a "part-time" dog (Duke). A long-story-short on my part-time-pup is that my brother (Ben) travels a lot so I am lucky enough to be Duke's go-to babysitter and BFF :). I spent this last summer working as a Camp Counselor at the South City YMCA and had SO MUCH fun, but it definitly made me miss getting to spend days at school with my students. I can't wait to have you all back at Shenandoah, but for now I am so proud of you for your perserverence while we adapt to our virtual classroom. I can't wait to get to know all of you and get this year started! GO TIGERS!!!!
