Hello Parents and Students! My name is Ellen Autery and I am the 2A Homeroom teacher. I am so excited to be back at St. Clement, where I attended grade school from Kindergarten through 8th grade!

I am married and have two young daughters, Kate (3 years old) and Cora (1 year old). We also have a Siberian Husky named Lola, who is 8 years old.

Previously I taught at St. Joan of Arc School in South St. Louis. While there, I taught PE and Art for 7 years, first grade for three years, and most recently third grade.

When I graduated from Saint Clement I attended Ursuline Academy. I was a member of Student Council and played both soccer and field hockey. I accepted a scholarship to Saint Louis University, where I played Division One field hockey and received my Bachelor of Arts degree for Elementary Education in 2001.

When I was in 6th grade I knew that I wanted to become a teacher- I loved school so much! Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I am so excited to be back and St. Clement and teaching 2nd grade this year!
