Welcome to 3rd Grade!

Dear Third Grade Trailblazer,

Welcome to third grade! We are so glad you to see you learn and grow as a third grader this year! We will be doing a lot of neat things this year and we are so happy you will be a part of them.

Your first chance to see your classroom will be Monday, August 14th at Back to School Night. You can come to visit anytime between 5:00-6:30 p.m. Please bring your supplies with you so we can be ready for our first day of school. 


Enjoy the rest of your summer and we will see you soon!

Meet Your Teachers...

About Mrs. Anderson...

My name is Jani Anderson. This will be my 9th year of teaching and my third year as a Trailblazer.  I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO.  I attended (and played collegiate softball @) Western Illinois University and UM-St. Louis to earn my Bachelor's Degree, and I attended Lindenwood University to earn both my Master's Degree and Administration Certification.  I taught fourth grade for six years and sixth grade math for one year.  My husband, John, works at the Ford Plant in Claycomo, and we have two spunky boys.  Brady is nine and Luke is eight.  My boys and I are thrilled to make LC our home - we feel truly blessed to be a part of this amazing school community.   Fun Fact:  My lucky number is seven because of my birthdate of 7-7-77.  Let's have a fantastic year! 


About Mrs. Davis...

It’s hard to believe I am beginning my 15th year as a teacher and as a Lewis and Clark Trailblazer.  My co-teacher Mrs. Einerson and I are so excited to welcome a new group of third graders this year.  When I am not at working with students at school, I love spending time with my family – my husband Mitch, our daughter Nora, who is in first grade at Lewis and Clark, and our daughter Darby who is in preschool.  We love to have movie nights, go on walks, and cheer on Sporting Kansas City!  Here’s to a great year in third grade!


About Mrs. Einerson...

Hello!  I am so excited to be starting my 12th year in education.  I have been at Lewis and Clark for the past 5 years, and I am happy to be beginning my 3rd year of co-teaching with Mrs. Davis.  It is going to be an amazing school year.  When I am not learning from my students, I am with my family.  My husband Tait and I have four awesome kids.  Thea is nine and will be a 4th grader, Calla is eight and will be a 3rd grader, Abram is a spunky 2 and a half year old, and Elin is 4 months.  Thea, Calla and I get to come to LC everyday together, it is simply the best!  We are a very active family that loves soccer, watching movies, riding bikes, and cooking together.  I can not wait to get to know all of you!


About Mrs. Persinger...

Hi, my name is Theresa Persinger. I have been a teacher for three years as well as Resource Paraprofessional and Intervention Specialist for three years prior to my student teaching. I have graduated from Rio Salado College with certification in Elementary Education. In addition to this certification, I have obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Science minoring in Education as well as currently pursuing my Master’s Degree in Integrating Technology into the Classroom. I am married and have three children, Mackenzie, Drake and Sierra. As a family we are very active in sports and love watching baseball! I look forward to spending time with your child this year!


About Mrs. Shomin...

I am thrilled to be joining the LC 3rd grade team and to be beginning my 15th year of teaching.  I have spent the summer with my husband and our two sons (Jake, 12 and Matthew, 10) and we have made the most of every sweet summer moment! I have taught 1st and 3rd grades at two other schools and have spent the last 5 years right here at Lewis and Clark as a Special Education teacher. I am a proud graduate of Mizzou and also graduated from Rockhurst University with my masters in Education. I love to create, read, write, cook, and socialize. Sports and sports schedules rule our life right now and when I'm not at school I am often on the bleachers with camera in hand.  I love to document, capture, and share moments and hope that someday these memories will help me treasure the fun times that seems to go way too fast.  The classroom holds the most tender part of my educator's heart and after 5 years I am ready to jump back in with a fresh set of eyes and lots to catch up on!  I'm SO ready and I can't wait to spend a fabulous year with awesome kids and families in 3rd grade!
