WELCOME to the 2021-2022 School Year! I am SUPER excited to meet you all! Together and safely we are going to have fun interacting and learning. My name is Ms. Holmes. I am the General Education Teacher in the Inclusion Pre-K Classroom here at Hodgen Tech Academy, Classroom 106. I have taught for 27 years in Early Childhood Education. I have 24 years of experience as a preschool teacher. I have also taught Kindergarten, first grade and second grade. I have been teaching in Saint Louis Public Schools for 8 years. I am grateful to have the opportunity to do what I love, TEACH others. My goal is to facilitate scholars to become critical thinkers as well as problem solvers. Being respectful, responsible and maintaining self-control is a part of the daily expectations. Together as we, parents and myself, support each other and the scholars, we will create future leaders.
To all of my parents, guardians, and scholars:
We will communicate through the use of ClassDojo, Microsoft Teams, email, by phone and here on my Webpage. Those platforms will allow us to have a two-way communication. We can make posts, share class stories, class assignments, notification of upcoming events, and send private questions/concerns to me. Please stay safe and take care of yourselves! Please visit the SLPS Website Links tab to click on the link for the different ways we will be communicating. Thanks for your support!
