Mrs. La'Kendra Garrett
Welcome! I am the English-Language Arts teacher on Team Polaris. This will be my first year at Steger and my first year teaching 6th grade. I am excited to continue my journey in education in Webster Groves and embark on a new adventure. I love teaching reading and writing. My goal is to introduce students to diverse literature and help them develop a love for reading and writing.
Although this is my first year at Steger (and first teaching 6th grade), I have been teaching for over a decade. This year will be my 12th year in education. I taught 4th grade for nine years and worked as a Master Teacher for two years.
I am originally from South Carolina. I grew up in a small town not far from Myrtle Beach. I moved to St. Louis in 2016 with my husband and two sons. In 2017, our family size increased by one as we welcomed our daughter. She has brought so much joy to our lives and keeps us busy.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy going to church (St. John AME), reading, traveling, and creating memories with my family.
