Hi.  My name is Ms. Sally Kemper, I am a special education teacher at Hodgen Tech.  This is my 15th year in the district.  My sixteenth year as a teacher.  I specialize in teaching students with Autism.  I have many hats that I wear;  Mother, teacher, advocate, daughter, friend, and I do my best in all of them. 
I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.  I have never left (even for college).  I am an avid Cardinals fan!  I can follow a football game.  I attend one Billiken basketball game a year.  Go Bills! I will always like Michael Jordan.   I have a twenty year old son.  He keeps me busy.  I love the zoo, I have 2 African Clawed frogs,  3 leopard geckos, a turtle, a pac-man frog and a betta fish for pets. I enjoy baking, camping, traveling, scrapbooking, and taking pictures.  I look forward to getting to know you too.  I cannot wait to see what this year brings.  I hope you are as excited about learning as much as I am to teaching you.  We will be virtual for the first quarter and then hopefully in person.  This is different for all of us.  We will do our best and have a great year!  
In addition, the Academic team has created enrichment packets to encourage continuous learning among students of all grade levels. These packets are available at meal distribution sites, and they are posted online at
