Jazz and music of all types is what ac lab teacher, Katie McGuire throws her extra time into. McGuire attends concerts once a month. If not, McGuire is at home practicing instruments like the piano, the guitar or the ukulele.
Other musical events like the Jazz Festival here in Webster are where McGuire likes to spend free time. She recently attended the Foo Fighters concert, which happens to be one of her bands of interest, McGuire said.
As one of the new ac lab teachers, McGuire said she’s very excited to start at Webster Groves High School and has heard nothing but great things.
McGuire said, “I’ve wanted to work here for a while; actually I applied six times before I got the job,” McGuire said.
Experience in social studies, algebra and geometry are what McGuire hopes to use to her advantage to help educate students but said she also has experience in being a social worker, teaching middle school math and working with people who have dementia. McGuire said she hopes to teach math here.
