Early Childhood Assistant

“No child is the same, even if they do come from the same family. All children are different and learn in their own way.”

Latricesha Capleton, or Trice as she prefers, joined City Academy in 2020 as an Early Childhood Assistant. She has a very rich background in education and has been working with children for 23 years. She has a bachelor’s degree in early childhood and a master’s degree in education with an emphasis on curriculum and instruction.

Most of Trice’s career has been spent working at Head Start, but she has also worked in St. Louis Public School District for six years, three years as a kindergarten teacher and three years as a first grade teacher. Most recently, she worked at Washington Elemiddle in Normandy school district as a second grade teacher. She is excited for the new experience of an independent school!

When Trice is not working working, her 12-year-old daughter Shiona is keeping me busy with dance. She also enjoys baking, which she is great at!
