    “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.”

    –Martin Luther King, Jr.


    Mrs. Wampler graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in English Education from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 2011. With the love of teaching driving her, she worked at Premiere Charter School as a substitute teacher for over a year and then moved to Confluence Academy Walnut Park as a full time Middle School Communication Arts Teacher for 2 years. Over 8 years ago, she started working at AESM Middle School for SLPS and she couldn’t be happier. She enjoys teaching Reader's Workshop and English to her students and hopes they all become lifelong readers. She finished her Masters in Secondary Education and a Special Reading Certification through the University of Missouri- St. Louis in 2022. 

    In 2018, Ms. Muren joined the St. Louis Teacher Residency Program as a mentor teacher. She currently has two residents that she coaches in her classroom.
