Dear AESM School Families,
With immense joy and excitement, I warmly welcome you as we embark on this new academic year at AESM. We are thrilled to have your child and your family in our vibrant, diverse school community.
Middle school is a crucial phase in a child's life, where they undergo significant intellectual, emotional, and social growth. At AESM, we are committed to providing a nurturing environment that fosters academic excellence and encourages creativity, critical thinking, and a love for learning. Together, we will support your child's journey of self-discovery, helping them unlock their full potential and prepare for the challenges and opportunities.
Our dedicated team of educators is passionate about guiding and inspiring your child. We believe in the power of collaboration between parents, teachers, and students. Your involvement is invaluable, and we encourage you to actively participate in your child's education. Whether attending parent-teacher conferences, volunteering for school events, or simply engaging in conversations with your child about their school day, your support plays a crucial role in their success.
Throughout the school year, we have planned events, workshops, and activities to strengthen the bond between the school and home. These events will provide valuable insights into your child's education and create opportunities for you to connect with other parents and be an integral part of our school community.
Please feel free to contact us anytime if you have questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share. We value open communication and believe that by working together, we can provide your child with the best possible educational experience.
Once again, welcome to AESM. We are honored to have you and your child in our family. Let's make this academic year a memorable and enriching experience for everyone involved.
My name is Dr. Angela Clark, Ed. D., and I am a proud St. Louis Public School District graduate of Sumner High School. "Go, Bulldogs!" I am a seasoned educator and passionate advocate empowering teachers and students to pursue educational excellence. With a rich background spanning over 12 years in the field of education, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role of Academic Instructional Coach (AIC).
Graduating with honors with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Lindenwood University in August 2010, I embarked on a journey in education driven by a deep-seated commitment to nurturing young minds. I started my career as a dedicated elementary classroom teacher. My most notable recognition was being an honorary recipient of The Pettus Teacher of Excellence Award during the 2014-2015 school year. I received a Master's Degree in Education with an Emphasis in Reading Specialist from Lindenwood University in August 2018. I most recently completed a Doctoral Degree in Higher Education Leadership at Maryville University in the summer of 2022.
Recognized for my exceptional teaching methods and unwavering dedication, I was promoted to various leadership roles within the academic community. I served as a mentor to a new teachers program. I was grade-level and department lead for several years, fostering a collaborative learning environment.
In 2020, I transitioned into the role of an Academic Instructional Coach, where I found my true calling. As a coach, I have been instrumental in transforming teaching practices and elevating student outcomes. A blend of encouragement, mentorship, and data-driven strategies marks my approach. I am renowned for my ability to inspire teachers, helping them unlock their potential and implement effective instructional techniques tailored to diverse learning needs.
In my role as an Academic Instructional Coach, [Coach's Name] is dedicated to fostering a culture of continuous improvement, collaboration, and student success. My unwavering passion for education and extensive experience make me an invaluable asset to the academic community and a beacon of inspiration for educators and learners alike.
I am looking forward to the 2023-24 school year.
