My name is Mrs. Billham, formerly known as Ms. Satchell, and I am a sixth 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 third year at Vashon, where I currently teach English I (Freshman Literature and Composition), and Reading Workshop for sophomores. I am also the Lead Teacher for the English Department 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.
