    Hello! 

    Welcome to the 2021- 2022 School Year!  We will learn some new things together but I can't wait until I can meet you in person!
     
    Mrs. Buckingham was born and raised in St. Louis, MO and comes from a large family, all products of the St. Louis Public Schools!  I attended Longfellow and Kennard for elementary, Busch Gifted and Talented for Middle School, and graduated from Southwest High School (which now is home to Central VPA).  I am so glad to still be involved in the education of the children in St. Louis for my 34th year- 33 of those at Shaw VPA.  I have seen many wonderful families throughout my time here and still enjoy it everyday!
