    Mrs. Hopgood

    I have been teaching 10 years and am currently teaching 5th grade at Gateway Elementary! I looped with my
    current class from 3rd to 5th grade. I taught my previous group of students for 4 years (I looped with them from
    2nd- 5th grade). I really enjoy being able to meet the needs of my students and build strong relationships with
    them and their families.
    I've taught in Los Angeles, Kansas City, Illinois and now St. Louis. I was also the 2018 Golden Apple Award recipient, sponsored by the St. Louis American Newspaper and St. Louis Public Schools! 
    I've also served in various capacities at Gateway and within the school district.
    Prior to being an educator, I worked as a print and broadcast journalist in the capacities of reporter and news anchor.
    I reported stories that impacted and informed many communities in the cities that I lived and worked in.
