Welcome to Mr. LaFever's Class!



Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Jim LaFever

2020/2021 is my 11th year at Gateway STEM and my 15th year in SLPS.  I am 54 years old and I have lived in the St. Louis area since I was halfway through kindergarten.  I attended DeSmet High School and I went to St. Louis University and UMSL for my undergrad and graduate degrees.  I currently live with my oldest daughter, who is a teacher in the Parkway School district.
