My Name is Ms. Kargus and I am a 5th grade teacher at Mallinckrodt Elementary. I graduated from UMSL with a B.S. in Elementary Education and worked for two years with Pre-K students at Bright Horizons before accepting a position with Saint Louis Public Schools as a 4th grade teacher. The past 3 years I have taught 5th grade students. I recently went back to school and graduated from Lindenwood University with a Master's degree in Gifted Education.
My partner and I live in south St. Louis with our dog Luna. We have two daughters, one who is finishing up her degree in Accounting at University of Central Missouri, and another who is beginning her first year at Illinois Wesleyan University. I love to travel, attend festivals, and read a good book.
