Kindergarten Classrooms

Alison Pickens  

Hi! My name is Alison Pickens and this will be my 8 th year teaching. I earned a duel degree in Elementary and Special Education and a college, taught for 2 years in Mississippi before moving to Tennessee. There
I taught for 5 years as a K teacher, and one as a duel Special Education coordinator. Now, I get to teach in my hometown! Each year, I have been amazed at the family my classrooms create and the lessons our kiddos teach me. It’s been a joy to stay connected and see them thrive in and outside the classroom. This Summer, I married the best person I know! We are so excited to build our life here in Saint Ann. I like to sing, bake sweets, laugh a lot and eat! And most of all, be with the army of family and friends I love. I can’t wait to learn from your kiddos this year!

Jamie Dubbs

Hi and welcome to Buder! My name is Jamie Dubbs and this is my second year teaching at Buder but my 15th year teaching altogether! I have previously taught Pre-Kindergarten and 1st grade. I graduated from Missouri State University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education. My husband and I have two little boys and an English bulldog named Bucky! When I’m not at school, I love to spend time outside with my family and trying new recipes! I am so excited to meet you and we are going to learn so much this year!

Brittany Moseby

I am Brittany Moseby!

This is my 5th year teaching and I previously taught in Hazelwood and Ferguson-Florissant School Districts. I have my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education with an Emphasis on Special Education. I am currently enrolled in the Masters Program for Cross Categorical Disabilities at UMSL.

Family is very important to me and I am really close with my family! I have 2 brothers; one older and one younger, 3 nephews, my mom (my best friend!), and my sister-in-love! The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite movies and Ariel is my favorite Disney Princess. Disney and Marvel are my favorite movies to watch and talk about! At heart, I am a big kid and the kids can sense that so I always become really close with my kiddos!

Elizabeth Platte 

Hello! My name is Elizabeth Platte and I can’t wait to meet you! This is my first year in the Ritenour School District.  I have been teaching for 12 years; seven of them in Kindergarten. The first year of school is always so exciting and I love creating a family community in my classroom! In my own family I have two sons, Tristan (17) and Oliver (5), and 2 dogs, Shiloh and Sylvester. We all love to relax at home, cook, watch movies, take walks, and travel. My older son and I have been all over the U.S. and even the world! 

I can’t wait to get to know you this year!
