Hello! My name is Lisa Kargus and I am a 5th grade teacher at Mallinckrodt Elementary. I graduated from UMSL with a B.S. in Elementary Education and received my Master's Degree in Gifted Education from Lindenwood University. This is my sixth year at Mallinckrodt AGI and my fifth year teaching 5th grade.
My partner and I live in south St. Louis with our dog Huxley. We have two daughters, Maddie who lives in Tacoma, Washington and Zoe who is beginning her first year of college.
Outside of work I enjoy traveling, going to as many festivals as possible, all things dog or dog related, reading, and cooking.
Mallinckrodt is a wonderful learning community, and we have some of the most passionate and dedicated teachers and staff. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to be surrounded by such amazing humans!
UPDATE TO ADD: SLPS has made enrichment packets available to all families. Follow the link on my page to access these packets. More information will be available to all families on April 6th.
