A bright smile from a bright new teacher

Many of the in-person bodies this 2021-2022 school year are new to the St. Charles High building. Not just the freshman, or the sophomores, but a handful of teachers as well.

Although COVID-19 was the main cause for students missing out on their in-person classes, teachers such as Skye Reichert are simply new to the district. 

Previously teaching at Soldan High School in St. Louis for a few years, Reichert decided to move districts to feel closer to home. “This is my community and where I live and where I’m comfortable.” She said.

Reichert’s reason for moving shows her morals as a teacher as well, “A lot of the decisions that the St. Louis Public School District made; I didn’t feel were in the best interest of my students.”

I want to make sure that all of the students in the building are represented and have a place to go.”

Inside of St. Charles High School, Reichert has taken the position of the Student Council sponsor, “I want to make sure that all of the students in the building are represented and have a place to go… What kinds of sports or events do they want to see in the building and then doing a lot of community outreach as well,” Reichert said. 

So much passion for the school environment and the community for students and peers isn’t something you see everyday. Reichert’s encouragement to be so involved in the school so early in her teaching career at St. Charles High was thanks to her values, “It’s really big for me to have a good relationship with my students and to have a good relationship with my building to feel at home.”

Outside of the school, Reichert stays busy in her home life. She spends a lot of time reading, fixing up her older historic home, biking around various parks, and walking Main Street.

Putting important time towards all of her interests, Reichert is a passionate educator who is committed to making a difference in the lives of the people around her.
