Mr. James Greenlee

Greetings and welcome McKinley family and friends! 

While I’m in my 22nd year with St. Louis Public Schools, I’m extremely excited to start my first year here at McKinley CLA! This year I’ll be guiding students through US History 1 (7th grade) and AP World History (High School). 

The most important thing I’d like you to know about me is that I LOVE WHAT I DO!  

And with regard to my career, my love for teaching is matched only by my love for your kids!  

Outside of education, my other passions include my family; a loving wife of 26 years, two awesome children and two perfect grandchildren. I also enjoy music, literature, travel, hiking, kayaking, and almost any outdoor activity. 

I’m looking forward to getting to know each of you and to a great year!
