Welcome to our classroom of busy, busy bees!  Everyone in this family community owns the responsibilities to be Respectful, Own their actions towards others, Act safely at home and at school, and to be Ready to learn at all times.  Presently, due to the Corona virus Pandemic, we are witnessing a new way of learning.  Virtual Learning is the way we will ALL start learning.  As of now, my Team members and I are preparing exciting lessons to bring to you via the internet.  I would like your participation in this effort.  I want you to be involved and responding to the lessons I will present for you.  Ask questions that will help you learn and I will respond back to you. I will present new lessons for you each week.  Let's have FUN learning!

     I am a product of the St. Louis Public Schools and I'm very PROUD of this fact. I graduated from Soldan H.S. I received a BS Ed. at Lincoln University, MO and a M.ED at University Missouri, Saint Louis.  We are surrounded by many fine institutions of learning in Missouri.  Presently, your path at Herzog Elementary, leads you to a wonderful education also.  I have been an Educator for over 20 years because I simply enjoy working with young students and learning from you as well.
