    Teacher Message: I am Mr. Todd Vierling and I am the eighth grade algebra teacher at Busch Middle School.  The students are working on some new and challenging concepts this year and I am very excited about the great group of 8th graders that I am instructing this year.  The students should have a math journal that includes their notes for the year, homework three to four times a week, and should be practicing and working on skills that they are struggling with in class.  I am always open for questions of any kind and look forward to meeting and speaking with all parents.  i can be reached by cell phone at 314-800-5133.
    Biography:  I was born and raised in North St. Louis and attended River Roads Lutheran School, Lutheran North, and then had a full scholarship to the University of Missouri-St. Louis in which I majored in middle school education.  I graduated from college in 1988 and I worked as a long-term substitute in the Ferguson-Florissant School District, taught at a shelter for troubled youth in St.
    Charles called Youth in Need, taught 8th grade social studies at Blow Middle School for about ten years, and currently I am in my fifth year at Busch Middle School.  I initially taught 6th and 7th grade social studies, then taught 6th and 7th grade math for two years, and currently I am teaching 8th grade algebra and loving it. 
    One of my biggest hobbies is traveling.  I have been to every state and between 50 and 60 different countries.  This past summer I went to Russia, am thinking about traveling to St. Thomas over Winter Break, and might go to Europe for Spring Break next year.  I just completed my Masters in Elementary Education with a focus in Math in May and presently I am working on my Masters in Educational Counseling at UMSL.
