Hi, and welcome to fourth grade J My name is Anne Mitchell, and I am excited to be your teacher this year!
I grew up in St. Louis and attended high school just down the road in Webster Groves. I went to college at Southwest Missouri State University (now just Missouri State). I have been pursuing my Masters in Communications with an emphasis in Reading at Webster University.
Through my teaching career I have had experience with a range of age levels, socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. I taught Kindergarten for several years in the St. Louis Public School system. I then took a year to explore different areas and substituted for Kirkwood, Special School District and Lindbergh. I ended up staying and teaching 4th grade in Lindbergh for 4 years and loved it.
Next came Eddie! I took time off from classroom teaching when he was born. I couldn’t quite give up the classroom, and remained active - volunteering for five years in the Lindbergh School District and for four years in the Webster Groves School District. I served on a Webster Groves Elementary’s PTO as a Communication Officer. I truly value the vital school to home connection and I encourage you to feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns you may have at email@example.com or 314-962-0613 X 5015.
During my classroom hiatus, I also worked for Affton Parents as Teachers as a Parent Educator, which included assisting with Kindergarten screenings. I used this time to complete my Character Education Certification.
I live in Webster Groves with my son, Eddie, and our beloved beagle, Scooby J. In my spare time I love swimming, hiking, camping, reading, and just having fun with my family and friends. I look forward to learning more about you!
