Taylor Berns

bio_miles.jpgBorn and raised in St. Louis, Taylor is a John Burroughs School alumna and an ardent Cardinals baseball and Blues hockey fan. Her passionate and enthusiastic spirit permeates the fourth grade classroom, where she loves sharing smiles and laughter with her students. She loves being part of the learning process and watching children embark on the path of discovery. Her students’ energy and curiosity motivate her to help them achieve their best.

Before earning a M.A.T in Elementary Education from Fontbonne University, Taylor received her B.A. in Classical and Medieval Studies from Bates College in Maine. She minored in Ancient Greek Literature and spent a semester in Athens studying Greek Civilization. 

Having spent her school days making lists of fascinating places she would one day like to visit, Taylor is now an avid traveler whose favorite trips include those to Kenya, Tanzania, Morocco and Belgium. She also enjoys spending time with family and her two pugs.

Amy McMullin

bio_mcmullin.jpgAmy relishes the opportunity to witness children feeling success they worked hard for. “To see a student’s excitement when they earn a good grade on something that really challenged them, or when a tough concept finally ‘clicks,’ is the best part of being a teacher,” she says.

Amy especially enjoys teaching writing because of its personal nature. She loves getting to know her students through their stories and cherishes the connections she makes with them through writing.

A St. Louis native, Amy earned a Bachelor’s in marketing then set out to make a positive impact on the world as a teacher. She pursued a Masters in Teaching from Fontbonne University, serving as a substitute teacher for Rossman during that time. “I realized what a special, nurturing place it was and knew that I wanted to be more involved,” she says.

After five years teaching fifth grade in the Ladue School District, Amy returned to Rossman to teach fourth grade.

An avid Blues hockey fan, Amy loves to exercise and run local races on the weekends. She and her husband enjoy traveling, cooking, watching movies and tackling DIY home projects together. They also adore spending time with their son, two labrador retrievers and 22 nieces and nephews.
