Welcome to Scholars XL 2021-2022
Hello! Welcome to Room 201 -Scholars XL!
My name is Kim White-Mengis and I will be teaching 4th and 5th Grade in the Scholars XL Room. I have been teaching in the St. Louis Public Schools for 29 years. I have taught at many different schools during this time, and have taught at Humboldt AHL for the past 9 years. During this time I have taught in grade levels from 1st-5th and also as a Reading Specialist. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's Degree in Reading Curriculum and Development.
I have lived in St Louis my whole life (except for when I attended college) and attended grade school and high school here. I have 2 sons, Zech and Matt. Zech graduated from Northwestern University and now lives in Austin, Texas as a Digital Media Specialist. Matt is 16 years old and attends Lindbergh High School. He is a wrestler, so I spend a lot of time in gyms. I also have an Australian Cattle Dog named Byndie, who is full of energy and attitude.
