    Dear Super Scholar Families,

    I am very excited to welcome you and your child to 4th Grade!  While your child is in 4th Grade, I will be working my hardest to make sure that I provide the wonderful and enriching education your child deserves. 

    Learning is a process that happens in and out of the school building.  I hope we can work together to make sure your child learns as much as possible each day.  

    I look forward to seeing your child each morning by 7:55 . a.m. Students will have daily homework. I ask that parents or guardians check homework assignments and any information from school daily. Be sure to send forms or notes back to me/ the school in a timely manner.  Also, please be sure that your child is dressed in uniform DAILY, because incentives/rewards are available for students who are in uniform.

    Please feel free to visit our class as a volunteer at any time.  Please just call me in advance so I can schedule your time.  Thank you in advance for your support and encouragement to make this a very successful year for your child, you, our class and community.


    Mrs. Hopgood

    I have been teaching 9 years and am currently teaching 4th 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.
