Meet Ms. Victoria

We are so excited to welcome Victoria Pope to our class as our student teacher this semester! Below she will tell you a little about herself!

Hi Parents,

My name is Victoria Pope. I am a senior at the University of Missouri studying early childhood education. I will be in your student’s classroom everyday starting January 21st for the full day this semester. I am very excited to get to know you, your students, the curriculum, and the school as a whole.

A little bit about me, I am an African American young woman from the south side of Chicago, IL, currently residing in the south suburbs. I have had a long-term passion for working with children, and knew I wanted to become a teacher at the age of 14. At 12, I had my first real experience working with children when I began volunteering at my home church’s nursery as a junior nurse. From then on: I have volunteered at two day cares during high school for national honor society hours, took a child development class my senior year of high school; where during the second semester, as a class, we ran a pre-school for community and faculty members’ children, baby sat family and clients’ children, worked at a daycare in 2018, worked at a church nursery in Columbia for over a year, as well as completed 3 ½ years of pre-service learning through Mizzou in Columbia Public Schools.

I have enjoyed working with all of the children I have come across, ages infant to 13, and I cherish the bonds, relationships, and learning that are developed over the course of time. I look forward to creating those bonds with your students and learning from Mrs. Layla and your students. I believe your student’s interests and intellectual capabilities will help me help, observe, and support your students growth as a learner, as well as help me grow along with your students in my teaching journey!

If you have any questions, concerns, or want to reach out to me, my email is Thank you for the opportunity and I look forward to a great school year!

Best regards,

Victoria Pope
