Ms. Chavon Curry

Hello Mason School of Academic & Cultural Literacy Family,

I am excited about serving the students, staff, families and community partners of our school community to ensure that all students continue to receive high quality learning experiences. I will work hard to make sure that we continue to provide the safe, inclusive, wonderful and enriching education that each child deserves.

Prior to becoming an Assistant Principal at Mason, I was the Assistant Principal at Gateway Elementary School for 3 years. Prior to that, I fostered my love of teaching at Gateway where I have served as a classroom "looping teacher" in 2nd-5th Grades.  I was also the 2018 St. Louis American Golden Apple Award recipient and the 2020 Elementary Reading Teacher of the Year.

Throughout my career with SLPS, I have worked in multiple SLPS district opportunities, among many other things.  In addition, before teaching in St. Louis Public Schools, I taught in Los Angeles, Kansas City and Illinois. Prior to being an educator, I worked as a television news reporter and anchor. 

I am excited to see the incredible experiences that our students will experience this school year!  

Educationally Yours,

Ms. Chavon Curry, Ed.S.
