Mr. Michael Decker

My name is Michael Decker. I'm a Special Education Teacher at Busch Middle School of Character. I'm a United States Marine Corps Veteran, and I'm a proud member of the Disabled American Veterans organization which helps disabled veterans receive the care they need. I received a Bachelors Degree from the University of Missouri St. Louis in Liberal Studies with a Major in History and Political Science in the summer of 2020, and I'm working on a Masters Degree in Education at Fontbonne University, and I will receive a Masters' Degree next year. My career goal, is to become a history teacher, or continue working in Special Education, and continue to give back to my community. I have been very fortunate to learn from some of the best teachers in the state, which has helped me become a better educator here at Busch Middle School of Character. 


In my free time,

I'm a huge soccer fan, and I'm part of several different supporters groups that give back to many different charities across the St. Louis region.

I also try to play golf as much as possible, and I have been very fortunate to play at many different golf courses in the St. Louis area, and in the United States as well.

I try to read as much as possible. My preferred genres are Non-Fiction, History, and Military History.
