Ms. Laura Ernst
Welcome to Buder Elementary! My name is Ms. Ernst. I am the Special Education Resource Teacher. I was born and raised in Saint Louis and I'm a big Chiefs fan. I received my bachelor's from Southeast Missouri State and my Masters's from the University of Missouri of Saint Louis. I have been working in early childhood as a preschool teacher, Autism teacher, and in the K-2 Inclusion program. I have spent the last few years in Kansas City and moved back to be part of the SLPS team.
My philosophy of education is that children learn best through play. This is where children can develop social and cognitive skills and gain self-confidence in new experiences.
