Name:Bradford Besse
Room Number: 208 
Subject: 3-4 Language Arts 
Hello there!  My name is Mr. Besse and I am the Language Arts Teacher for grades 3-4.  I teach the CKLA curriculum to the 3rd and 4th graders and I am very excited about this newer curriculum. The students last year were very excited about the subject matter in the curriculum which makes them more eager to learn!  By the end of the school year, I believe that there will be much more growth in their reading and writing scores this year on the MAP test.  I was hoping to see these results from last school year but we did not take the MAP due to Covid.  We can look forward to seeing how the students will score this year!
I have been a teacher for over 20 years, most of that time has been in St. Louis Public Schools.  I have taught from 2nd through 5th grade. I have two sons, one who is 20 and one who is 15.  My oldest has graduated from Carnahan High School and my youngest is beginning the 9th grade.  I attended Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville where I received my degree in Elementary Education.
