Mr. Hadley Kilgore


I grew up as a military brat.  I lived in several different states and attended multiple primary and secondary schools.  When we did finally settle down it was in Phoenix, Arizona.  After high school I had the opportunity to attend the University of Arizona.  I was fortunate to play four years of football and received a Bachelor of Science in Education.

My family and I transferred here from Arizona where I had been teaching prior to moving to the St. Louis area.  This will be my 12th year teaching science in the St. Louis area.  I spent the last 10 years teaching 8th grade science in the Parkway School District.  This will be my 2nd year at Hazelwood East teaching chemistry.  My previous teaching experiences have given me a wealth of real-world examples to enhance and emphasize the Hazelwood curriculum.    

Furthermore, I want you to be assured that I am going to prepare, engage and challenge your child’s ability.  Through the materials and lab experiments provided in this course, I will lay the foundation for future successes in science.  I am consistently collaborating with our veteran staff on how to better prepare them for the future.  Through these efforts I strive to accomplish our mission in Hazelwood schools to create a more capable and confident learner.

Lastly, I am a huge advocate for technology and will continue to refine our educational experience through a multitude of multimedia applications.  These types of formative assessment are an easy way to check for understanding as we proceed through the course as well as being fun and interactive.
