Mrs. Gretchen Bluette
I hold teaching certificates in both Elementary and Early Childhood Education. My career began in 1992 with teaching preschool at the Affton Lindbergh Early Childhood Center for 1 year. I then moved to Fulton, Missouri and taught full day kindergarten for 3 years while attaining my Master's degree from my alma mater, William Woods University. I returned to St. Louis and taught first grade for the next 9 years in the Riverview Gardens School District before coming to Avery. I have been teaching first grade at Avery since 2005! I have continued to grow professionally throughout my career and currently hold a MA +50. I have 4 daughters who attend Webster Groves schools. They will be graduating in 2021, 2022, and 2024.
