Mrs. Teresa Vogtman


Hello to my kindergarten families! My name is Teresa Vogtman and I am so excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher for the school year.


I have been at East Elementary since 2011 but I have been a teacher since 2000.   I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree from York University in York, Nebraska and with my Master’s Degree from Lesley University.  I love school myself and cannot wait to pass that passion on to your kids!


I was born in Tacoma, WA and moved to Missouri in 2010 with my family. My husband Scott is retired and loves to make things with all his tools. We have 2 children.  Our daughter, Maegan, is married and a graduate of Waynesville.  Our son Matthew graduated from Waynesville High School last school year and is attending Iron Eagle Welding Academy.  We also have a 7-year-old granddaughter named Emma Grace whom we adore!


When I am not teaching or planning awesome things for us to do in class… I love reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family!
