SSD educator praises strides being made by Lindbergh, Mehlville

To the editor:

I appreciated the Aug. 17 pieces regarding Lindbergh Schools’ Karl Guyer and the Mehlville School District’s request for respectful use of renovated athletic fields.

Having been an administrator in the Lindbergh district and residing in the Mehlville School District, I am proud to learn of capital improvements and projects that are successfully completed, benefit our communities and display good stewardship of public funds. The Special School District is proud to serve students and parents in both Lindbergh and Mehlville and to be part of those school communities.

Lindbergh continues to be an exemplary school district in Missouri and the opening of the Dressel Elementary is another example of their distinction. My respect for Mehlville continues to grow as I see it move steadily forward with transparency, common sense and creativity. I have had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Scott Clark, the new MOSAIC School principal, and I am impressed with his work ethic and the vision he has for his students.

I am fortunate to have worked in the Lindbergh district and to have seen Mr. Guyer’s work firsthand. Additionally, I am fortunate to live in the Mehlville district, which I believe is on its way to becoming a prominent Missouri school district under the leadership of Dr. Chris Gaines.
