Mrs. Billham

 My name is Mrs. Billham, formerly known as Ms. Satchell, and I am a tenth year high school English teacher. I taught 7th-12th grade ELA at a private school in Ferguson-Florissant for three years before coming to SLPS.

This is my seventh year at Vashon, where I currently teach English II (World Literature for Sophomores) and AP Literature and composition for Juniors. I am also the English Department Chair and Testing Coordinator here at the V.

My favorite thing about being a teacher is building relationships with students and watching them grow not only as scholars, but as productive citizens. I have lived in St. Louis all of my life, and knowing that I am able to help support our next generation of leaders is a privilege.
