Mr. Jeffrey Batchelor

This will be my seventh year at McCurdy elementary school. I serve as one of the teacher's aides at our school and do a wide variety of tasks. Parents will often see me the most at the crosswalk at the beginning and end of the school day keeping our students safe. I really enjoy building relationships with students, and often give nicknames to the students to help strengthen those relationships. I live in the Hazelwood school district itself and am a graduate of Hazelwood West High School.
