Hello parents, students, staff and community members!
My name is Michelle Gilmer and I am excited to begin the upcoming school year as one of the assistant principals at the Sikeston 5th & 6th Grade Center! I have been an educator in the Sikeston R6 School District for 21 of the last 22 years and am proud to be a Bulldog!
I am a graduate of New Madrid County Central High School and I attended Missouri State University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I have a Master of Education in Information and Learning Science Technologies from the University of Missouri – Columbia and a Master of Arts in Elementary Education from Southeast Missouri State University.
My husband and I have two sons. My oldest will be a junior in college this year and youngest will be a senior at SHS. Our dog, Mayberry, completes our family. I enjoy reading and watching my boys play baseball!
I began my teaching career at Southeast Elementary where I taught first, fourth and fifth grades. I have served the district as an Instructional Technology Coach and am excited to begin my journey in administration this year at the 5th & 6th Grade Center. I am a firm believer in the importance of building relationships with our students, parents, staff, and community members. Please feel free to reach out to me for any concern or issue you have. I look forward to working with everyone and having a great 2020-2021 school year!
