Students juggle school work with after school jobs 

Students already have hours worth of homework every night. Some students choose to throw sports or after school jobs into this struggle. Some choose to add both. 

Some businesses in Webster Groves accept high schoolers as job applicants. Teenagers can apply for jobs at restaurants like Serendipity, Firenza Pizza, The Block, Dairy Queen or Dewey’s. Places like Saint Louis Gym Center, Vetta Sports, and Lucky’s Market will also hire students. Some students choose to babysit or mow lawns to make money as well. 

Teachers share pre-teaching job experiences

Whether Webster teachers went to school here, have been here for over 20 years, or are in their first year of teaching, Webster hasn’t been their only home, and teaching hasn’t been their only job. 
Before settling down, Webster Groves High School staff were world travelers, bean farmers, and more.
