Mr. John Mitchell

Welcome to 2nd Grade!  My name is Mr. Mitchell and I will be your scholar's 2nd Grade teacher  I am a St. Louis native and have been teaching in the SLPS district for eight years.  I received my Bachelor's degree (BA) in Elementary Education from Webster University in 2014.  Prior to that I was a toy designer, museum exhibit designer, and production manager.  I also retired from the U.S. Army in 2017 after over 20 years service on Active Duty and in the National Guard.  I am excited to begin this school year and watch your child grow!

Please check the other tabs for more detailed information on our daily schedule, weekly lesson plans, and links to important educational sites.  We will mainly be using Class Dojo for home communication, and Microsoft Teams especially if we have to return to virtual learning for any reason.  You may also check this teacher website for parent/guardian information.
