    About Mr. Lescher:

    I have been the principal of Busch since 2006. Prior to that, I was the assistant principal at Carr Lane VPA for two years.  I began working in the Saint Louis in 1999 as a teacher in Hamilton Elementary School.  I went to Drury University in Springfield, MO and Lindenwood University for graduate classes.

    In 2008, I graduated from the L.A.C.E (Leadership Academy of Character Education) program led by Dr. Marvin Berkowitz of UMSL. It was this program that inspired me to create a program that focused on “character.” I was fortunate enough to have our superintendent’s support in changing the theme of our school to character education. Working at a school of character has been one of the best experiences of my life. It is fun to come to a place where most people are trying to be kind to one another. 

    I am married to my wife Darcy and we have three children between us and one dog. My current goals are to be able to do 10 handstand pushups (I am getting closer) and have our school recognized as a School of Character again in 2021. I like many genres of music and watch some (but not all) sports regularly. I love reading… I really do and I am not just saying that!
