Now that I have described some of what makes Spoede so special, I’d like to share a little information about myself.
I received a bachelor’s degree from Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio, where I majored in Secondary Education and English, with a minor in Special Education. After teaching for 10 years, I completed my master’s degree at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana. Shortly after receiving my degree, I relocated to the St. Louis area. In 2003, I received an administrative position with the Special School District, in the Bayless School District, serving grades K-12. In 2006, I began pursuing my doctorate degree at St. Louis University in the area of Educational Leadership, finishing in May of 2009. My first principalship began in 2007 at Bayless Intermediate School. I have been the principal of Spoede Elementary since 2012.
I can’t express how happy I am to have found a family at Spoede Elementary School where we work hand in hand with parents to develop caring, service-minded leaders and problem-solvers.
