Mrs. Bethany Jasper
My name is Bethany Jasper, and I am a special education teacher at Mullanphy School. I began working for St. Louis Public Schools at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year with four years of previous teaching experience. I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Missouri State University in 2004. In 2015, I received a Master of Public Administration degree from University of Southern Indiana. I began teaching in 2005. After teaching for a couple of years, I decided to change career paths. I worked for nonprofit organizations for many years and returned to teaching in 2019. It was the best decision for me. Teaching is my greatest passion, and I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to teach for St. Louis Public Schools.
I have many personal interests. I am a mother of five children and two step-children. All of those children are adults, with the exception of my eight-year-old who lives at home. I have two grandchildren who provide me with more joy than I ever knew was possible. Lucas and Ezra are 6 and 2, and I love spending as much time as I can with them. I also enjoy hiking and bike riding.
My first year teaching at Mullanphy School has been a wonderful experience, and I am looking forward to next school year. I believe it is essential to a student's success for the teacher and parent(s) to work together to support the student. I am looking forward to getting to know the parents of all my students for the 2022-2023 school year. Some supplies that might be beneficial to each student when returning to school in the fall are a backpack, a folder, pencils, crayons, and a pencil pouch. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to teach your children. I know we are going to have a great year! I am adding some links for students to use this summer. I hope they enjoy them.
