    Hello there!  My name is Mr. Besse and I am the Language Arts Teacher for grades 3-4.  I teach our new CKLA cirriculum to the 3rd and 4th graders and I am very excited about this new cirriculum. The students seem to be very excited about the subject matter in the cirriculum 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 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 19 and one who is 15.  My oldest has graduated from Carnahan High School and my youngest is finishing up 8th grade.  I attended Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville where I received my degree in Elementary Education.
