I am looking forward to the 2023-2024 school year!
This is my 26th year teaching at Buder. I am lucky enough to work with amazing students who are speakers of other languages.
I started out at Buder as a Special Education teacher. After 15 years, another opportunity came up and I was able to study at Mizzou to be certified as an ESOL teacher and earn a Master's Degree. This is my 10th year in that position.
I particularly enjoy working with such a great group of students, parents, teachers, and staff. We make a fantastic team! This school year, there are 3 ESOL teachers at Buder.
Molly Brinkmann - Grades K and 5
Katie Avenevoli - Grades 1 and 2
Danielle Phelps - Grades 3 and 4
I work with children in several different grade levels. The teachers and I collaborate as much as we can in order to increase language proficiency.
I believe that all children can learn and I expect all of my students to do the very best they can.
I enjoy reading and knitting in my free time.
