What is a Family & Community Specialist?
Family and Community Specialists (FCS) are liaisons for families and schools. We help bridge the gap between home and school while developing community partners for our scholars and families. FCS also collaborate with school staff for home visits and other support services as needed. We assist with Family Engagement events and activities, parent/guardian, and student concerns, and help ensure our schools have a Welcoming Environment. FCS encourage daily attendance for scholars to increase academic success. Our ultimate vision is full intellectual potential to give our scholars opportunities and choices. We believe in leveraging the identities of our families and seeing them from their strengths and needs, valuing and honoring families and integrating home school partnerships in achieving our educational outcomes.
ABOUT ME: My name is Tamesia Fowler; I am the FCS here at Mullanphy Botanical ILC. I have been employed with Saint Louis Public Schools (SLPS) for six years. I have completed two years of education, Organizational Studies at Fontbonne University. I have two children (boy and girl), my daughter has cerebral palsy and continues to conquer the world. She is such an inspiration to me and the job I look forward to everyday. The challenges are bitter sweet but we continue as a team (teachers, community partners, student support team, and physicians).
As the FCS, I will continue discussions and partnerships with parents, staff, and the community that we’re connected to within the school setting. I will continue to collaborate with the student support team to improve the relationship between school and home.
Parental involvement is important, and we hold it in high regard at Mullanphy. Our goal is student success, and to achieve this goal we encourage parents/guardians to take a more active role in their child’s education; we look forward to partnering with you to achieve this. I want us all to work as advocates and partners in the education and lives of our students. I look forward to working with you and eager to assist you with any concerns. You can reach me at Tamesia.Fowler@SLPS.org or by calling 314.772.0994.
Let’s make it a great year as we Explore.Learn.Grow.Together!
