Jr. High Teacher / Preschool Teacher
Stephanie has taught more grades than places she has lived. She grew up in Nebraska and graduated from Concordia University Nebraska. She then moved to Minnesota, married Kevin, and Directed a Childcare/Preschool and taught ECFE. A move to Michigan blessed them with three children: Brittany (1996) and Tyler and Michaela (1998) and the opportunity to teach 5th/6th grade; Assistant Director at a Child Care Center; First Grade; undergraduate education students. After 8 years in Michigan, God moved them to Colorado and more Preschool years. Since 2006, they have been planted in Minnesota. In those years, Stephanie has taught 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and Preschool. She is thankful for the blessing of each opportunity and grade level taught because it creates variety and understanding of children on multiple levels.
Stephanie enjoys being a “mom”, which is an evolving nest with children leaving and returning at various points. Her oldest, Brittany, married this summer and is beginning her first year teaching in the St. Louis area. Michaela is beginning her second year at Concordia University Wisconsin and her twin brother, Tyler, is serving in the United States Marine Corps.
Stephanie also enjoys sporting events, time with friends, reading, camping, and enjoying time with others! Stephanie is thrilled to be joining the St. John’s family and sharing her love of reading and writing with our students!
