Greetings Parents! My name is Jean Slaven and I will be your child's first grade teacher this year. I have many years of experience in the classroom working with a wide range of students. My certifications include Elementary Education grades 1-6, as well as Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages grades K-12. I have been in the St Louis Public School District for 10 years. This is my sixth year at NCNAA. While I have taught every grade over the years, the majority of my experience has been in the primary grades, either as a lead teacher or an English Language Learner support teacher. I'm looking forward to a great year full of excitement and learning as we move through first grade.
I currently live in St Louis and have two grown children. My hobbies include reading and painting. I enjoy laughing and spending time with family and friends. Being a life long learner is a concept I hope to instill in the students in my care.
I'm here for you and your child. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that may arise. Virtual teaching and learning are new to all of us, and a challenge. However, by working together we can support each other for success.
Have a great day!
