Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ms. Menkhus. I was born and raised right here in St. Louis and love what our city has to offer. I am a big fan of the Blues, the Cardinals, and Imos! I graduated from Webster University with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's in Education. I am certified to teach Elementary and Middle School Math. I have taught all ages from newborns through adulthood all over the St. Louis area. I am honored to be here at Gateway Elementary as a 5th-grade teacher. My teaching philosophy is that students should be taught how to think not what to think. My goal is to help each one of my students grow academically, emotionally, and socially while we prepare for middle school.
I look forward to a memorable year!
**Well it is without a doubt a memorable year!! Thank you to all the students and parents for being so patient as we transition into virtual learning! I am sending out weekly emails and daily updates through our class app CLASSDOJO! Please email me if you are not getting these updates! All of our class assignments will be posted on TEAMS.
I am proud to say that our class is very Technology advanced as we have already been working in class using Microsoft Teams so they know how to log in and complete their work. It can be tricky though as all of their passwords were saved to their class ipad so please reach out if you need any assistance at all!
We will be holding virtual lessons daily from 10:00 to 11:00 so please have your student log in and take advantage of them seeing and working with their peers. You can also schedule a conference or small group study by emailing me. Take a look at my calandar for all available tiimes.
Thank you all again and stay safe! I look forward to seeing you all again soon!
