Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Todd Faulkner and I am in my second year at Shaw Elementary as the Physical Education/Health teacher. I previously taught middle school physical education/health for eighteen years before arriving at Shaw. My passion for education began as a child with all of the wonderful educators who had a profound impact on my life. In college, while playing football, I made the decision to make my passion my career as I majored in education with the intent of teaching. Besides teaching, I have spent just about as many years coaching various sports which include football, wrestling, and track. While in high school, I was a three-year letterman in both football and wrestling but also participated in track and baseball. From there, I accepted a football scholarship to the University of Central Missouri where I was a four-year letterman. After that, is when I began my career in education leading me to Shaw Elementary in the St. Louis Public School District which is absolutely awesome!
