Meet our new Chief Education Officer Eric Winkles, Ed. D.
VP/Chief Program Officer-Education

  1. Tell us about yourself.
    My wife and I were both born and raised in St. Louis.  We have been married for 13 years and have four children – Jackson, 10, Ava, 8, Gannon, 3, and Hattie, 18 months.  We stay busy with our kids’ sports including ice hockey, soccer and dance.  I have been in education for 17 years and have worked in general and special education settings throughout my career.  I received my doctoral degree in educational leadership from St. Louis University.   
     
  2. How did you get into education?
    I got into education because of my first grade teacher, Mrs. Lane.  Mrs. Lane was the most caring, wonderful teacher I ever had.  I went back to my elementary school when I was in college to see Mrs. Lane and talk about my future.  After our meeting I switched from a business major to an education major.

  3. Why did you decide to join Great Circle?
    I wanted to be part of an organization that provided me with the opportunity to feel a strong sense of purpose.  I feel strongly about the importance of an organization’s vision, mission, and core values.  Great Circle’s vision, mission, and core values attracted me to the organization.

  4. What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
    I have been skydiving.  When I was in my early 20’s I spent about 8 hours “training” to skydive and jumped out of a plane later that day.

  5. What impact will the Webster Groves school renovations and new addition have for students?
    The school renovations and new addition will provide a trauma-sensitive setting that will help maximize the benefits of therapy and teaching.  The new school space will provide all stakeholders with a modern, motivating learning environment.
