Susanne Boyer:

Hi, my name is Susanne Boyer. I was raised in St. Louis and am proud to call it home. I have worked in St. Louis School since 2010. I work primarily with elementary students but I enjoy helping in the kitchen so I have the opportunity to see all the students. These last few weeks during this crazy pandemic I have been able to help the teachers prep some activities to send home for our students to continue learning. Take care and see you all soon.

Karen Demong-Elliot:

My name is Karen DeMong-Elliott and I’m an EA at St. Louis School. Everyone calls me Mrs. Elliott (much shorter!) I’ve been at St. Louis school since fall, 2008. I currently work in a few different classrooms. In grade 4/5, I help with ELA (improving reading and writing skills), Math (individualized programs for two students) and Social Studies/Science. I help one and sometimes two high school students with ELA and life skills (shopping for school groceries, sewing and recycling). I am also in grade 6/7 math and grade 1 assisting a number of different students.

During Covid -19, I have been providing educational support to an assigned student. Soon, I will have some elementary students reading to me over Facetime.

At times, I have felt overwhelmed watching what is going on around the world with Covid-19. I try to focus on the numerous positive responses to this crisis- like our front-line health care workers and even grocery clerks sacrificing for us all and many showing their appreciation (signs in windows or banging pots on their front steps). I especially love the message “Stronger Together” so let’s stay united and do our part to stay safe even if it’s small.

Elaine Chicoine:

I began working with SRPSD in 2004. Before COVID-19 I mostly was working with Miss Aitken in the Pre-K room. I spend some time in the Grade 1 room. I was also working in the kitchen helping to prepare the snacks and lunch programs. I am helping Mrs. Hunter, prepare supplemental learning packages and some students have been able to join us for our morning meetings. I am doing well here at home, apart from missing seeing all those smiling faces.

Wanda Halcro:

Hello my name is Wanda Halcro. I have been employed as an EA with SRPSD for 20 years. I’m very fortunate to say that 13 out of the 20 have been spent at St. Louis Public School. Over these years I have worked in many classrooms from K-12 , helping out wherever I am needed.

Since the closing of schools I too have been home, just like you! It’s nice to have the opportunity to say a quick “hello” from over the fence  when you are out walking or biking with your families.

Miss you and see you soon.
Mrs. Halcro
