Ms. Rhonda C. Stovall, Ed.S.
My name is Rhonda Stovall, and I am the second floor science enrichment lab instructor at Gateway MST elementary. I am honored and thrilled to return to the science lab after teaching an amazing group of fourth grade students virtually for an entire year. This year marks my twenty-second year teaching in St. Louis Public School District, and my seventeenth year teaching at Gateway, so needless to say this is truly my home. During my tenure, I have taught grades fourth through sixth. As a science lab instructor, I have taught students in grades third through fifth, as well as cross-categorical classrooms. This year, I will have the unique opportunity to work with students in grades kindergarten through second. As an educator, I have been very blessed and humbled to have won and received several awards and accolades for my educational practices and experience in both classroom instruction and in science. I am currently pursuing my doctorate in educational leadership, with emphasis in both social justice and neuropsychology. I am looking forward to an exciting and rewarding year of learning and exploring the principles of science with your student!
The pandemic has truly changed the way education is delivered to our students. From increasing the need for science education, to the creation of educational teaching philosophies that demand that equity is granted to every student. By working together as a community, each stakeholder can create a classroom community that is caring, structured, and allows each student to thrive both academically and socially. Thank you for all that you do as parents, and I look forward to working with you this academic school year!
