    Welcome to the 2023- 2024 School Year!  We will learn some new things together and I can't wait to start our adventure!
    I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO and come from a large family, all products of the St. Louis Public Schools!  I attended Longfellow and Betty Wheeler CJA for elementary, Busch Gifted and Talented for Middle School, and graduated from Southwest High School (which now is home to Central VPA & Collegiate High Schools).  My own children have attended SLPS schools- including Shaw VPA. I am so glad to still be involved in the education of the children in St. Louis for my 35th year- 34 of those at Shaw VPA.  I have seen many wonderful families throughout my time here and still enjoy it everyday!
