    Welcome to Kindergarten! 
     
    I am so excited for the start of the 2018 - 2019 school year: my 30th year at Shaw and my 31st year of teaching. As a product of the St. Louis Public Schools (Longfellow, Kennard, Busch, and Southwest High School) I know the opportunities we can provide for the success of our students. It is amazing how things have changed over my years here, but one thing remains the same: I love teaching Kindergarten!
