    My name is Megan DeVore and this will be my fourth year teaching! I graduated from Southeast Missouri State University and I am currently working towards getting my masters in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Math/Science from there as well. I have taught 3rd grade in Phoenix, Arizona and 4th grade in St. Louis Public Schools. I have a dog named Maui who I love to go on walks with. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, traveling, and baking. I’m excited to teach 2nd grade this year and look forward to meeting you!

    Hi Wyland Family! My name is Stacey Frey and I am a 2nd grade teacher at Wyland Elementary. This is my fourteenth year at Wyland Elementary having previously taught third grade at a City Charter School. I am looking forward to a successful year working together.

    I am married and my husband is a firefighter for the city of St. Louis, firefighter Joe. I have three fur babies who I call puppers; their names are Simba, Mellie Belle, and Loki.

    Running is one of my favorite hobbies, especially at Disney World. Disney World is my home away from home. This includes watching Disney movies with firefighter Joe and the puppers. 

    Last, I believe in having a strong classroom community. My students are referred to as “Ohana.” Ohana is a Hawaiian word that means family. My class motto is, “Ohana means family, family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten” from the movie Lilo and Stitch.

    I am looking forward to a wonderful school year with my 2nd grade Wyland Ohana!
