Ms. Gillespie



Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Gillespie


 My name is Gennean Gillespie and I began my career journey with the St. Louis Public School System over 20 years ago. I joined the Herzog Elementary family this year and I really enjoy working with the 1st graders. They are always so excited to learn new things and to share their thoughts and personal experiences. I believe that all children have the right to a quality education that meets them where they are, and provides them with an educational foundation to reach their highest potential. I will work to continue providing my students with engaging lessons that meet state required standards. 

Our classroom symbol is the STAR and we have a special  star chant that we start each day with. Encourage your child to share our chant with your family and to remember that they have a lot of Shine inside! We will continue to learn and grow together during this time and the bond between school and home will grow even stronger!
