This is Ms. DeGreeff's third school year at Soldan International Studies High School, and her 16th year as an educator.  Previously, she taught with Mizzou’s College of Education’s Outreach Program, assisting high school students in the St. Louis area transition successfully to their post-secondary goals.  She spent her first teaching years with St. Louis Public Schools.  In partnership with St. Louis Public Schools and Washington University, Ms. DeGreeff coordinated and taught a community work experience program for students with IEPS.  Seeing students succeed in and outside of the classroom brings her joy!  Her experience with young people also consists of coaching cheerleading in parochial and public high schools.  She is a small business owner as a professional photographer and operates on-location photography part-time.  

Ms. DeGreeff's family is from the Philippines and she feels fortunate to visit with them in the summers.  St. Louis City born and raised with some of her childhood spent in Kentucky, she will throw "ya'll" around.  She enjoys family life, dancing, karaoke and learning the ukulele.  Ms. DeGreeff takes delight in her very active and talkative little girl who is in third grade this school year.
