Hello and welcome to my class. My name is Desiree Gentle and this is my second year teaching for the Waynesville School District, but I have been teaching since 2013. This year I will be teaching AP Literature and Composition, British Literature I & II, Composition, Advanced Composition, and Language Arts 12. I am also the assistant cheerleading coach, Junior class sponsor, and Senior class sponsor as well. I am a graduate of Waynesville High school and am excited to be back here teaching. I graduated from Drury University in Springfield, MO with my bachelor’s in English and then continued my education and received my masters in Writing from Lindenwood University in St. Louis, MO. I live in St. Robert with my husband Eric and our three children, Carson, Cooper, and Evelynn.
I am very excited to be a part of the Waynesville team and look forward to getting to know you all better. I have a passion for literature and writing and hope to share that with all my students. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that may arise this school year.
