Ms. Christine Ring

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! My name is Christine Ring, and I am enthusiastic about returning for my second year to Carr Lane VPA Middle School as an Academic Instructional Coach. I began my career with Saint Louis Public Schools as a special education teacher at Long Middle School in 1992 and transitioned into my role as an instructional coach in 2004 at Fanning Middle School. As an AIC, I support students, teachers, and our CLVPA school community in many ways. I serve as a resource provider, classroom supporter, data coach, mentor, learner, school leader, learning facilitator, curriculum and instructional specialist, catalyst for change, and relationship builder. Most importantly, I am here to improve student achievement.

As we transition to in-person learning, it is imperative that we stay safe, connected and continue to learn and grow. Students, remember to be 100% "powered up" and ready to learn each and every day. Pay close attention to class assignments and announcements from each of your teachers on Microsoft Teams. Parents, you can find similar information on the teachers' web pages.

I cannot wait to meet each and everyone of you! If you have any questions throughout the school year, you may reach me by email at

Remember to stay healthy, read daily, and always do your best! Let's kick off this school year Jaguar Strong...together!!!
