  • Welcome Busch Families!

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year! I am looking forward to seeing students back in school as we transition to in-person learning, starting Monday, August, 23rd. Our staff is very eager to welcome your child to Busch Middle School of Character, and to support them through this transition back.

    Please let us know how we can support you!

  • Biography:

    I am proud to serve as Assistant Principal of Busch Middle School of Character. Saint Louis Public Schools has been my home since 2010, and Busch since 2011. I taught 6-8 English Language Arts for 8 years and served as ELA Team Leader, followed 3 years of teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). I have enjoyed collaborating with my colleagues to support students in Math, Science, Social Studies, English, and Special Education, and I am happy to continue supporting a well-rounded educational experience for our students. I look forward to working with you and your family!

    When I’m not at Busch, I enjoy being at home with my family, spending time in my backyard gardening, and getting outdoors for a hike or camping trip. I love learning about history, politics, and social justice. I continue trying to figure out how to best contribute to anti-racism and equity in our school and community.
