Ms. Lavinia Yalengbiye / Nurse Y

My name is Songo Lavinia Yalengbiye. I go by my middle name Lavinia and am referred to by the students as "Nurse Y" (my last name is a tongue twister). 

I graduated from the University of Missouri-St. Louis with my Bachelors In Science of Nursing. My career journey includes working as an Emergency Room nurse. Certainly, working as a school nurse has been like a difference between day and night. I am so excited about working with the staff and students at Meramec and hope to get to know all the families that support our students.
