Welcome to First Grade!

     I am Kris White. I have been in education for 19 years. To begin with, I attended Xavier University for two years. Coming from a long line of educators, I felt a calling to become a classroom teacher. I then transferred to Harris Stowe State College. While completing my degree, I worked as a Teacher Assistant for second grade at Pershing Accelerated Elementary in the University City School District. Upon completing my degree in Elementary Education with a minor in English, I was offered a second grade position at Pershing, where I taught for the next 5 years. During this time, I completed my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

     I then chose to accept a classroom position at a brand new school in the Riverview Gardens School District. I have been at Moline Elementary since the doors opened (14 years)! Here, I have taught first, first/second split, second, and third grades.

      In addition to classroom teaching, I taught dance classes and competing show lines at my home dance studio, Pelagie Green Wren Academy of Dance, tap classes while at Pershing (to over 130 students), co-chaired the Moline Pommettes, and am currently instructing The STL ‘MINI'-FLAVA Line Dancers!

      I am a wife and a mother of two awesome boys!

     As your child's teacher, I like to think of myself as the ‘Teacher Mom'! Thank you for trusting me with your precious babies and...
