Role: First Grade Teacher (2021-2022 School Year)

Share something no one knows about you: I have lived and taught in Los Angeles, California before getting my teaching position in the Webster Groves School District.

My Family: My husband, Bob, is an architect and we are from a small town in Northeast Missouri. We have 3 children: Aubry(21) is a junior at Rockhurst University, Brenna (17) is a junior at WGHS, and Dominic (14) is an 8th grader at Hixson. As a family, we enjoy music and outdoor activities.

What I am looking forward to: I am excited to grow our community with our new students and families and work together to make Givens Elementary a great place for children.
